Microsft has recently released Bing, a great new search engine that in many ways is technologically superior to Google. Bing's search process is very similar to googles, so most of us will be familiar with it, however it's search results are a lot more dynamic and give you easier access to a lot more information.
So how do you really test Bing out? The best way to test a new search engine is to switch the default search provider in your browser, this way all your search's will go through the new engine. By switching the deafult search engine you can test the new engine in real world scenarios without having to remind yourself to head over to a new URL every time.
In this guide we will show you how to make that switch in some of the top browsers. If you use a smaller, alternate browser, feel free to let us know how to switch its default engine in the comments.
Internet Explorer 7/8
Firefox offers a Bing add-on which adds both search and suggestions to Firefox's search box.
Google Chrome doesn't (yet) support extensions so its a bit more difficult
The easiest ways to change your search engine in Safari is to use the Glims plugin. Glims adds a number of features to Safari, including tabs, thumbnails, full screen, suggestions, and more.
