Microsoft to Google: Bing it on

Microsoft(s msft) has long struggled to convince users that its Bing search engine delivers better, more focused results than Google’s(s goog) market-leading search.

Now it’s challenging users to put the two searches through their paces in a “side by side search-off” at BingItOn.

Microsoft claims Bing as a 2:1 winning ratio. I tried it a couple of times, with Google winning once and the two engines fighting to a draw twice. To me, Google still has better “news” search which is what’s most important to me. But go ahead, try it and let us know in comments how it went for you.
