Has Google got a new rival?
I've just been looking at two new search engines.
The first, launched by Microsoft, is http://www.bing.com/
Now, I like two things about this one - firstly it's easy to remember and named after one of my favourite TV characters and secondly it's clean and simple. The fact that http://www.cognacproperty.com/ comes up quickly on a host of different searches helps matters too.
The second is http://www.searchme.com/
This is more for multimedia sites but it's design is similar to i-tunes and is fun to use.
I'm not sure they will put too big a dent into Google's revenues but you never know....Google itself was once a new kid on the block and now it's possibly the best known brand in the world.
