The Microsoft TEs told us all that Bong would be a star.
Report Says Bing Sees First Monthly Decline
"According to comScore, Hitwise, and Nielsen, Bing gained ground in
August, but StatCounter has released info indicating that Bing has
experienced its first monthly decline in the US, in September."
That's _global_ (estimated) share, not US-only like the rest. Google commands
close to 90%. Microsoft only says this to regulars ("kill teh eeevil Google"),
not to the papers, as that would be embarrassing.
