Bing, Microsoft's latest incarnation, has 9.9 percent share. AOL, Ask, My Web and Comcast took the next few spots for a combined 5.7 percent share.

God please don't let Microsoft see this. I don't want any more adverts for Bing placed all over!

manrod, I am sure they know on some level but they live in the land of make believe. They only time they made great software was when they gave the programmers software bonuses. Now they are just warm bodies. All the smarts comes from management these days. I hate bing and most everything else they have done this century.
