The way Microsoft's Bing search engine displays results may be changing soon. A recent report over at Search Engine Land confirmed that Bing is testing displaying website favicons to the left of search results.

I tried to duplicate the results pictured above in every web browser I have installed and was unable to get any favicons to display, which is consistent with the results that Search Engine Land got. They were, however, able to obtain confirmation from Microsoft that Bing is indeed testing out this new feature.

In a statement to Search Engine Land, Microsoft had the following to say.

We're constantly updating and refining the Bing search experience, and before any changes are implemented they undergo intensive testing and experimentation to ensure the best possible user experience. We have nothing further to share at this time.
