Bing (bing.com) is a search engine. Bing was founded by Microsoft.

DESCRIPTION

The homepage of bing.com had a grand background image with a search box in front of it. The search box above the fold returned Bing search results. It showed the weather of my local town in the top right corner along with an icon to show that I was signed in to my Microsoft account. Beneath the search box were numerous links to news articles taken from today’s news headlines. As I scrolled the page, there were more top stories and some news articles that seemed related to me. There was local news to me as well as international news. The news articles continued in seemingly an infinite scroll as I continued scrolling down the page. 4/16/2024
