Bing New DesignBing announced a major redesign to their search interface.

This time Bing took out all the clutter and went incredibly minimalistic with their design. There is white everywhere. They removed the left hand rail from the search results. They said the design adds "faster page-load times and improved relevance under the hood."

Here is the before and after:

New Design:

A WebmasterWorld thread is talking about the new design. Some people love it and some people feel this is no big deal, all they did was clean up stuff and remove images and flare.

Your thoughts?

they should realize that design has only 5% impact. their search quality should improve. the new design looks as if they copied Google...

Good move, I think that's what most people expect from a search engine - not to get in the way of finding what you're looking for.

I think it looks great. Sure it is a bit of a copy of Google's minimalistic look, but if you can't beat em join em, and I for one am very happy to see Bing stepping up against Google. Especially, given that Google has done webmasters so wrong lately. Go Bing!

Soooo many Google lovers...  :)   The new design is intuitive and neat, which makes for a great user experience.  If Bing can maintain their search results quality and Google does not fix the Pengiun "spam results", Bing may very well see an increased market share in the not so distant future.   Usability is as important as quality of search results to the average user, which does NOT include webmasters.
