In the next days the new microsoft search engine goes online. You can already test a beta version on www.bing.com. I have to admit that they did pretty well.
For example if somebody searches for "MMC rts" then google doesn't show us on their first result page. On bing we are the second link. Other phrases where bing ranks us better are for example "MMC khufu", "MMC homepage".
What do you think? Does bing have any chance vs google?

When i started my internet career (year ~1996) we used http://www.altavista.com/ (yea there was no google in that time). This was the only search engine that we know and that worked well. As far as i can remember it looked pretty similiar to the current version.
So google modified that search style a bit and created the standard common web search form. From that point of view i think the bing thing is pretty "innovative".
