Bing (formerly Live Search, Windows Live Search, and MSN Search) is the current web search engine (advertised as a "decision engine")[2] from Microsoft. Bing was unveiled by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on May 28, 2009 at the All Things Digital conference in San Diego. It went fully online on June 3, 2009,[3] with a preview version released on June 1, 2009.

Notable changes include the listing of search suggestions as queries are entered and a list of related searches (called "Explorer pane") based on[4] semantic technology from Powerset that Microsoft purchased in 2008. As of July 2010

Bing is the third largest search engine on the web by query volume, at 12.7%

search market.

On July 29, 2009, Microsoft and Yahoo! announced a Search Alliance.

Bing with 12.7% and Yahoo! with 18.9% combined Bing will have 30% of the US search market.
