Now that Bing is live, you may be ready to give it a real shot as your default search engine, instead of just “playing” with it for fun. Switching search engines can be hard if you leave it up to yourself to try and remember to navigate to a new URL manually – old habits die hard. Instead, it’s better to go ahead and switch over your browser’s default search engine to the new service if you want to really try to make a change.
If you want to do that in IE, it couldn’t be easier. There’s actually a new search provider add-on that enables Bing search for you in IE8. The Bing Search IE add-on delivers search results and suggestions from the new bing.com and all you have to do is click the “add to Internet Explorer” button found here.
