Microsoft Bing Gets Remade for Spring

Microsoft has been fine-tuning its search engine Bing since launch -- rolling out new features, refining the design and otherwise trying to figure out ways to better connect visitors with the information they seek.

At this week's Search Engine Strategies 2010 Conference in New York, Microsoft gave an early look at further changes in store for Bing. For starters, the new design will encompass a new approach to Tabs and more location-based data. Small Business Computing has a look.

It's spring and Bing is busting out all over, to paraphrase the hit song from Carousel.

To show it's serious, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Thursday previewed several new features and updates coming to its Bing search engine this spring and summer at the Search Engine Strategies 2010 Conference in New York.

"When we launched last June, one of the ways we helped customers get to better decisions was by providing a more visual, more intuitive, and more organized experience. This spring we will continue this evolution by making some changes to our user experience and providing new experiences throughout search," Microsoft spokesperson Todd Schwartz said in a post to the Bing Community blog on Thursday.
