Comments from some of those that selected Bing as one of their top tools

“Seriously, this is the be all and end all. I’m in this search engine every single day. However, I’ve been using BING too.  (Yes, you read that right).  Why? Because Bing is Microsoft’s internet search browser. That means, it LINKS all my work documents to my search.  For example, if I log into Bing with my Microsoft work credentials, and I do a search on “Onboarding”, not only will it provide PUBLIC references and links but also my INTERNAL documents, references, resources in our company that is open to be seen.  That is, it searches inside the company documents and enterprise social networks like Yammer and Teams for files, conversations, documents that has that word in it. So now, internet searching for me means I can also find documents inside my own company instead of using public references.  It gives me line of sight over what work has already been done inside the company before accessing public links.” Helen Blunden, Australia, 2019
