    How about 30% of the people upgraded to IE9 (or 8) and automatically had Bing as the default search engine. There are a lot of people who turn it on and click, if they have to go inside and change things they're lost.

    I wonder how much of that 30% actually intended on using Bing for their searches?

    I would think the majority of that share is just the default search in IE.

    Haven't really tried it lately, but I must say that for example Yahoo's images produce more accurate results than google does. And AFAIK, yahoo is now powered by Bing.

    I have found that lately Bing (and Yahoo) has been indexing the sites I am in charge of much more requently and picking up the updates better than Google so I can see some advantages to swapping!

    And let's not forget Bing is used as the default search engine on WP7 powered smartphones. It can be a signal of strength.
