Microsoft said "Page insights on the Microsoft Bing search results page, which provides a summarized insights from a page on your search results so you can find what you’re looking for faster."

Glenn Gabe summed it up nicely in this Twitter post saying Page insights:

  • helps you verify the source is relevant
  • provides top factoids
  • lets you jump to the relevant section on the page

Yep, Bing is doing scroll to text like Google does on supported browsers.

Here is what Bing said about this - note Frederic Dubut is no longer with Bing.
