Microsoft introduces HTML5 video images on Bing Homepage

Microsoft proprietary search engine Bing now displays, on its homepage a dynamic moving image rather than a plain static image.

Today, users of HTML5-based web browsers who browse to will notice that instead of a static image, the front page now has a background that runs a time-lapsed video showing several hours of a rural mountain horizon.

However, non-HTML5 web browsers will see a static image on the front page when Microsoft puts in a video.

This new feature is currently available for US-only, but the video homepage will be rolled out to international markets in the next few months.

According to the Bing Team;

We won’t be programming a video every day, just when the mood strikes us.

Head over to and check out the new homepage!
