Bing has a new uncluttered search result page

Bing redesign

Starting today, Bing, the decision engine from Microsoft, has simple, uncluttered and interesting new look of its search results page. Long gone is the help menu in the left side (left rail), header image, page previews and contextual tabs, and to access your history, now you have visit Bing settings. According to the company the new redesign makes “[…] the entire page easier to scan, removing unnecessary distractions, and making the overall experience more predictable and useful.”

In the social network site, some results might feature a thumbs-up that when hovering over will display which of your Facebook friends has liked the result.

Many options such as search history, news and others now can be found by going to the MORE link. From there you can get access to social search, finance, translator, travel and other Bing services as well.

Bing options

Cosmetic tweaks wasn’t the only thing in this update, there are also improvements under the hood, Microsoft has tweaked Bing search relevance and page-load is now much faster.

The new design is simple and easier to use like the mighty of search, Google. But you’ll notice that the result page looks much cleaner that the one from the competition.

I just wish both Bing and Google would have an option to center the results page, the one column on the left can make a little annoying when using a widescreen high-resolution display, which also leaves a big white empty space on the right side — just a thought.

So how to you like Microsoft’s search engine now?
