<quote user="evilfantasy">To me Bing out performs Google only slightly[/quote]
I disagree
Searching for certain items related to domains / IP's Bing normally fails displaying 0 results or generalizes the search so that the results are highly insignificant, plus I see that keywords do not perform as they're examples infer, in fact the examples produce incorrect results. I made use of the feedback at the bottom of the results page which I grew tired of. So I went back to Google, time is limited.

Also...
bing.com
login
you get this warning message alert pop-up
Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party.
Ummm... the only thing being sent happens to be my login information:
MS account email and PW
What's next... spam?

In bing query this:
site:microsoft.com hasfeed:Security
no RSS feed results 1st page

In Google query this:
site:microsoft.com inurl:security RSS feed
all RSS feed results, 1st page.

https://google.com - secure browsing

https://bing.com redirects to http - non-secure browsing

Not sure what searches you are doing but I have never ever had a zero result on any search.

Just because Google has the https option on all services doesn't mean they don't track you. It just mainly means the websites you enter don't have as much information about your search or how you got there as they do without https. It's more of a layer of privacy by Google then it is of Internet/browser security. Also https is only available if you are logged in to Google. If not you need to use encrypted.google.

That's a Microsoft thing. You go back and forth from encrypted to unencrypted websites just the same with Bing as you do Google. MS has always warned about that. Google hasn't. It's hard to say Bing is less secure when they do warn you and Google doesn't.

Do the Bing challenge thing with normal searches and you should get the same impression I did. Other than normal searches I can show faults in ANY search engine. It's all in how you use them...

Since when is it? with me at the time I have no problems with it. But I think it is because the many things on the Internet will change

I've never adapted to using Bing although it seems to have improved some features. Still:
