Asa Dotzler, Mozilla's director of community development, wrote on his blog, urging people to switch away from Google to Bing, which he claims has a better privacy policy. Dotzler points users to the Firefox Bing add-on.

What's more, I don't care one bit for any of Bing's "extra" features. I don't want a shitload of javascript grinding in the background. I want a plain, empty page with a search box, a button, and a simple unordered list of results each with a link and maybe (*maybe*) a preview of some contents of the page. Adding other things is only acceptable of there is zero performance hit.


Agreed. I tried bing out for a few days, and I found while the results were pretty good, all the extra crap that had little to nothing to do with search is retarded.

The results are as good as google for some kinds of searches and far worse for others. Maybe if I used it for longer I'd find some kind of searches where Bing beats Google, but I am not holding my breath; Bing would still have all of its other flaws.
