Microsoft updates Bing image search to be Modern

Bing gets an updated image search, faster and less clutter

By Trace Hagan from Dec 18, 2012 @ 18:37 CST

Bing's image search has been updated today to make searching images more engaging, quick, and easy. Bing is promoting that you no longer have to load a new page or "dig through clutter." They say that the new design "loads quickly placing the image center stage." They offer a demonstration by searching for cute puppies:


We completely redesigned the image viewer, putting the spotlight on the picture and stripping out anything that got in the way. We "dimmed the lights" around the photo, adding a darker look that makes it easier on the eyes and lets the results shine in high definition. Simply click on the main image to navigate to the original source web page.

I'm still not sure who uses Bing--Google has over 60% of the market--but this is certainly a nice improvement for those who do use it. What do you think of the changes? Are you likely to choose Bing over Google because of them?
