When It Comes To Search, Bundling Bing In IE Barely Gives It An Advantage

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in the 1990s during the original browser wars between Netscape and 
| Internet Explorer, one of Microsoftâs chief weapons was the ability to bundle 
| IE into Windows as the default browser. With bundling came market share, or 
| so the government argued in its antitrust case against Redmond.   
| Fast forward to todayâs search wars. Youâd think that bundling a search 
| engine into a browser would have some impact on market share. But some new 
| data provided by search advertising network Chitika suggests that at least 
| for Bing, being bundled with IE isnât doing it much good.

,----[ Quote ]
| Search is a different animal. Microsoft never successfully bundled search 
| with IE because, well, Microsoft search pre-Bing was so inferior to Google. 


Mozilla asks EU to reject Microsoft's Windows 7 browser plan

| Bing has yet to capture as much of the market globally, with 3.27 percent of
| worldwide marketshare in June, behind Google with 89.8 percent and Yahoo with
| 5.15 percent.
