Microsoft launches new search engine

Google has become a part of our daily vocabulary. People have relied on the search engine to get information for nearly a decade, but now Google is facing new competition. Microsoft hopes people will stop Googling and start "Binging.” The long-time leader in software introduced a new search engine called Bing. It's similar to Google where you can search through categories like videos, maps, and news, but one distinct difference, Bing has a feature called "hover" that displays a brief summary of each web page when you move your mouse over the right edge of the link. If you move your mouse over a video, it immediately starts playing the clip without having to click on it. Breaking people's Google habit will likely be tough, so critics don't expect Bing to dethrone Google any time soon.
