Download: The New ‘Bing’ bar from Microsoft

Microsoft recently launched the Bing Bar. The new Bing Bar brings easy access to things like search, Facebook, e-mail, Bing Rewards, maps, games and more while staying on the current page you are viewing.

It is easy to use and it exposes features so you can find what you need and get more done.

According to Joshua Schnoll from the Bing team;

We took a back to basics approach for this release, guided by one key principle: make the stuff you do every day online easier.

We took a look at what makes our customers happy, how people use our products, and where they spend time online. The feedback was clear. People want an easy way to stay informed about the things they care about (such as Facebook, email, breaking news, weather and traffic).

Schnoll also stated that;

Each of the different buttons has several notification states. In addition to Facebook and E-mail alerts we also provide short alerts for breaking news (with a short summary of the headlines), weather advisories (like the Winter Storm Warning below), translation alerts (when there is web content available for translation), new Bing Rewards offers and much more.
