They left the "l" out which would have been way better, might as well have named it "White Christmas".

Well when google started I thought the name wasn't very good, actually I still do. It's not the name actually Live I thought was good. Bing ? No that's worst that google. But really it's not the name, actually google has broken from what I first started using it for, a search engine that would find what I'm searching for not Only !! not a bunch of junk. Even with filters, and quotes it doesn't find a page.

Take an OS, and edit out all the efficiency, and what you have left is a post-XP Microsoft operating system :)

I like it. Will it bring back detailed data during searches for um, uh, adult entertainment websites and materials?

Kumo was so much cooler. It has already failed because the name is so terrible. I would have liked Kumo. Idiots.

Bing...what were they thinking.  Does not seem like something i would say in normal conversation.  Hey did you google er Bing it?  So i guess at the bottom of the search offerings it will be BIIIIIIIIIIIIING. perhaps not, just BING.  Its a shame that such a massive company as MS can not compete with google.

 Good luck, i will try it at least for giggles...

Who knows really, look at google, that name google isn't exactly a normal name. It's really subjective and easy and that is what counts. That it's easy to remember like Google.com, Yahoo.com and ask.com were. Bing is easy and fast. They had to shorten ask down because it used to be askjeeves.com. Nobody wants to type in a long name when they are just doing a web search. I want something short like ask.com or google.com or Bing.com.

Not to bad of a name really. It could be worse. Could be bang.com or bong.com so it's a good name after all for what it is anyway.;

 ...And coincidentally(?) today's urbandictionary.com's word-of-the-day is Bing <a href="http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bing&defid=820437">Bing</a> and is defined as jail/prison *Rattles aluminum cup against bars*

Wow, that is quite the bing...

This just tells me that now Google will be more apt to continue development on Chrome.
