I explore five areas where Bing really outdoes every single search engine on this planet earth. I talk about education, and by education, I mean a bit of chemistry and some code, there is also a cool thing in Bing which is ‘Bing wallpapers’ and I’m sure you don’t have it in Google or any other search engine for that matter. I also tried some random search like ‘World Engineers day’ and the result was quite surprising as I expected Google to outperform Bing in this particular case. Nevertheless, that’s how it is! And last but not least I also talk about another unique feature that is ‘Bing image search’ which is not available on the desktop for obvious reasons. Bing image search is one of its kind and currently has no competition and also works quite well.
Don’t be dissuaded from watching the comparison video in the source article because of some English grammar peculiarities. There are some great examples of certain search queries and the difference in results between Bing and Google. For educational purposes, Bing really goes all out by giving examples and illustrations for certain search terms.
For instance, the video compares a query for a particular chemical compound formula. The result in Google returns a text-based description of the formula. Pretty standard and expected stuff. However, when that same query is used in Bing, an animated depiction of the molecular structure appears. If you did a blind test to decide which one offered the better result, I’m sure most people would choose Bing.
I really believe that it has been ingrained in our minds that Google is the all-mighty search engine. Far superior to any competitors. Yes, they’ve earned that clout through their hard work over the past two decades. However, it’s important to not automatically discount other search engines. Some of them have made a name for themselves by focusing on a particular feature.
DuckDuckGo advocates for user privacy. Bing, as just explained, caters to those that seek educational snippets. Yahoo, for all intents and purposes, is like an extension of Bing. It’s less flashy of course but does a nice job integrating both business and pleasure for your search needs. The fact is, there are plenty of capable alternatives to Google. However, I’m sure all of them will never quite reach the acclaim that Google has.
Google’s constant revitalization of existing products and introduction of new ones helps to maintain their relevancy. Not content to rest on their laurels, they continue to expand their reach and footprint with items such as smartphones, Chrome browser, and their voice assistant. With all these devices pointing back to Google.com, it seems almost impossible for competitors to come close to evening the playing field.
