Bing, as it's known, is another attempt by Microsoft to lure consumers away from Internet search leaders such as Google. Microsoft has posted a quarterly loss in its online advertising business, compared to Google's sales, $4.7 billion in the first quarter.

It also adds unique tools to help the user make important decisions. It is being touted as a 'decision engine.'"
