This is going to be much more powerful with new algorithm and Microsoft eyes to search engine leaders Google and yahoo with their new launch Bing. This is supposed to be makeover of Microsoft Live.
Its not bingo buddy Microsoft named it as Bing,a new decision engine. Bing lets you stop searching and start finding. With a powerful set of intuitive tools on top of a world class search service, Bing will help you make smarter, faster decisions.
Microsoft has come up with interesting stats which says in 2009 alone,there are four and a half websites created EVERY SECOND as the web continues to expand. This has made Microsoft to shift gears in the smart surfing world.

Fig: Bing Image search with filter option and preview option
I did few searches on image looking for windows vista wallpaper. I continue to dig for iphone wallpaper,psp wallpaper and wide screen wallpaper. Whatever you search, bing was able to give me high resolution quality images from web. I like filter options like based on layout(square or wide), if the image is about people(filter images which has heads & shoulders or just faces).
I love such features and its easy to get image of your taste from millions you have got.

just like image search, you can filter videos based on video length,Screen size(standard or widescreen),Resolution and from which source you want(you tube,Google video,MSN,Dailymotion,MTV videos etc.,) The best part I see here instead clicking on videos and it takes time to buffer then it depends do you like it or shut it.
No such hassles here, run your over on videos you want to open, you can take preview of those without opening a new tab or window :)
