    Thanks, I had been wondering whether my current Live Search default search helper would switch automatically to Bing since IE8 wouldn't detect the new handler on Bing.com. This is better than waiting until that, if ever, would have happened. Big Smile

    Bing is pretty neat, and the new modificaitons are nice. I usually get relevant results, but do you know one query that Bing/Live Search usually doesn't nail correctly? Try searching for "on10" and you don't get any direct link to this site to its homepage until digging down 3+ pages in the results (changes sometimes). Even then, this site is referred to as onten.net instead of on10.net (which I think is better and more relevant). I was hoping Bing would correct that, but nope. Hopefully it'll get it one day.

    I can't pin my finger on it exactly..but there are a lot of small/big improvements here that make it far more enjoyable to use.  The search and mapping performance is great.
