A Bing Community thread has one webmaster asking why is he getting traffic from

Brett Young from Microsoft's Bing Team came in to explain that the traffic seen coming from is actually from the Internet Explorer (IE) version 6 search pane or search box.

Brett said:

It is used for the IE6 search pane. I'm thinking the traffic is legitimate.
