We talked about the redesigned socially-driven Bing last week, with a massively redesigned interface, that promised new features that would differentiate itself from search giant, Google. Well, today, Bing is mostly up and can be tested by everyone.
It's not available on bing.com yet, but it is available at bing.com/new. If you want the 'full experience', you'll want to link your Facebook account up. The only thing missing is 'Snapshot', the center of the new three column design. But, the new interface is shown off, as well as Bing's new social integration elements.
I haven't tested it thoroughly, but it does look nice. I'm too much of a Google fanboy (everything I use is powered by Google), so Bing doesn't interest me that much. This will most likely change somewhat when Windows 8 is released. But, The Next Web is reporting that the new Bing is faster, not by a large margin, but noticeable in some areas.
Note: If you're not in the United States, set your country to the US in Bing, or else you won't see the new version.
