Default "The Bing Thing" has 16% of search market in USA within 5 days!

New search engine from Microsoft - http://www.bing.com/ - seems to be extremely popular, getting 16% USA search market within 5 days. Great success!

http://gs.statcounter.com/#search_en...90529-20090604

It got even bigger than Yahoo, with 10%.

And I would say .. finally. Google "monopoly" was never good for webdesigners.

Well, I do have to admit, I am liking Bing.

The background image thing is cool, especially with the mouse-overs

It has surpassed my expectations, even though I liked the name "Kumo" better.

I wonder how the fact that it was forcing IE6 users to view bing as the default homepage affected that :P

I think saying it has 16% of the market is a bit premature....I mean I'm sure there are tons (myself included) who have switched to it to try it out. Give a month then say what the market share is. I've already switched back to google.

Of course! But 16% is still a great start, eventhough it will surely go down fast and slowly grow again.

Wow I never realized that Yahoo had such a low percentage of the market. I really really dislike goole. I love yahoo, everything I need is right on the main page in a simple to view layout.

No one will ever topple google. When you tell anyone to search something on the web, I know I say "Why don't you google it?" It's become synonymous with web searching....
