A new infographic by FranchiseGator shows just how long it took Bing to copy a feature invented by Google. The infographic is the result of the FTC investigation into allegations that Google was a monopoly. As you can see, it took an average of 825 days for Bing to copy one of Google's new features:

Of course, some of the bigger features, such as mapping, were copied much quicker than others. However, some features, such as news searching, took over 2000 days for Bing to add after Google introduced it. This means it took Bing over five years to introduce a feature that Google debuted.

It's an interesting look into how the market leader is followed by others in the market. In order for Bing to become a big threat to Google, they will need to start innovating faster than Google can. Only time will tell if Microsoft is up to this monumental task.
