Microsoft Search – Good Days and Bad Days

Comments (4)

In my Microsoft-only web diet, I’ve been pleasantly enjoying Microsoft Search.  While some of the results are a little wacky (e.g. I was searching for the Microsoft Empower program yesterday and all I got were old links to the Irish and UK Empower pages – which were no longer active), it’s been generally very effective and I didn’t really notice any functional difference from Google.

However, Microsoft Search seems to have been down for the better part of the morning.

So – I had to break my diet and use Google for the last few hours of searches.  Fortunately, in Firefox, it’s really easy to change the search engine used.

    Yep, you said it, not much different from Google. Maybe I’m missing something but I think 98% of Google’s value is in its brand and I think brands are weak barriers to entry in the medium to long run.
