Bings And Tweets

While I would love to have alternatives to Google as a tool to navigate around the web, I'm not sure Bing is the thing I am looking for. The focus on being the exact opposite seems to get in the way of its substance. The big background image (as opposed to all Google's stark white) with links embedded all over it begs the question "Why do I need all this ?"

Even so, I have been using Bing sometimes to search just to see if I see significant difference in results - it's none too obvious from what I can tell. I just don't seem to get the usability of this site - too many misplaced options, too little by way of intutiveness. Then there is this odd marriage (or maybe not if the idea was to get on board the real-time search bandwagon) between Twitter and Bing called BingTweets.

Just the clutter on the trending topics was fugly enough for me to not want to return. Add to that the annoying left scroll bar and the frame in frame search results all clamoring for attention and I am really ready to leave. I guess I won't be in a hurry to enlist Bing's help to decision make.
