  1. Check the network quality of the recipient and then decide whether to load a background image or not, this would make homepage loading faste

    All devices having access to bing search might not have a quality connection, hence you can check the recipients network quality and decide whether to provide him an awesome image or an awesome page loading speed.

    • Don't force secure search and block organic keyword data.

      According to the rumours, Bing is planning to follow Google in making all searches "secure":
      http://searchenginewatch.com/sew/news/2322665/bing-begins-rollout-of-secure-search-say-goodbye-to-more-keyword-data

      I think this is a bad idea as both a user and a webmaster.
      The reason Google says they do it is for user "security" but users are not insecure just because the web has general knowledge of keyword data - but I think that is a lie and it's really just about locking up keyword data for monopolization purposes. I have no way of knowing who specifically searches for specific keywords currently with unencrypted bing searches and hence there is no "security" issues…

        Hi, thanks for the suggestion. We will pass this on to the team and let you know when we have an update. Please do keep submitting other ideas to make Bing a great product! Thanks.

      • Add HELP info/examples ( like SQL Server,Windows,Powershell,Office,.NET,C# etc) & also Tech Blogger's websites article directly into Bing.

        I have seen many developers are still using Google, even if they are working on Micriosft Technologies. So if someone has some problem in SQL Server and dev wants to use BING, but he is ending up going to google, becuase google offer more result from different different websites. Try to put at least all of your owen products technical stuff
        (HELP) info/example data into BING.

        • Group all MS/BING apps under one icon

          Like google, collapse all apps under one icon which will expand to list all the Microsoft or Bing apps ; This as well should be available in all the pages so user has ease of access.

          currently If I have go to my outlook I need go to homepage, that's really crazy bad.

          • Bug: Pressing back from a video linked on the homepage causes the sound to keep going

            If I press one of the Image of the Day links that goes to a video and then press back while it's still playing to return to the homepage, the sound will keep going for several seconds.

              • 10 frequent websites

                Love bing photos....but still prefer easy access....why not having small icons in the bottom of bing's page for 10 most frequently used websites without covering Bing photo of the day.

                Also where is the microphone button for voice search ? Maybe time to utilize Cortana in Bing.

                  We wanted to add an update regarding the homepage suggestion. Thank you for the input. We aim to strike a balance between beauty and usefulness for all items that make up the page. We consider this balance on every designer iteration we make.

                  Right now this suggestion doesn’t look like something that fits into our long-term plans. We want to thank you for your idea and ask that you keep sending us feedback. Every little bit helps.

                  Regarding the voice search, this will take a bit more time as the team investigates the feasibility of voice search and Cortana inside Bing. However, you do currently have the ability to conduct a voice search in Windows 10 using the Task Bar search box (see the attached image for more details). Again, thank you for all the great ideas, and do keep them coming, so we can create an even better experience…

                  • Search for cross-country skiing nearby

                    Searching should give information on nearby destinations for cross-country skiing. It should give maps, weather, snowdepth, temperature in air and snow, tips on wax and glider and information about the condition of the snow.

                    • Device Registry for Users for fluid transitions

                      Users should be able to log into or register their devices to Bing to help bridge the gaps between operating environments. I imagine some of this maybe considered in Windows 10, but allowing a user to register devices let's Bing shuttle consistent information across platforms.

                      For example, I could run a search for restaurants in a new area on my computer. Then later, on another computer, run a similar search and have the previous search results available. Then be able to send navigation instructions to my HERE app (even better if managed to send to Cortana for timely appearance of…

                        • It's time we change the homepage.

                          The quicklinks needs to be grouped together and not everything separate or we should be given the option at least to choose what we want apart from the basic stuff. That'd be great. The "more" should be at the end.

                          The sign in section doesn't show my profile when signed in.

                          In short..We are in 2015 moving towards "Mobile First,Cloud First"
                          PLEASE MAKE THE HOMEPAGE QUICK LINKS BETTER ALIGNED.

                          Quick tasks like "Set a reminder" need to be synced with WP (When logged it with the same account) That will be really great!

                                  • Link Bing app to Bing webpage and retrofit to all android apps

                                    I am able to download Bing App and it loads the Bing webpage, but it just gives me points for PC search instead of mobile search.

                                      I like Bing Image Search, but please add specific image sizes to search on. Also, it would be great to have a "Droidiris" for mobile - or "Cooliris" for web -type of swipeable image wall display of all the images found in the search. These improvements would blow Google Image Search away & certainly draw more users to Bing Search (besides the Bing Rewards program, which is great!) Keep up the great work with Bing Microsoft!

                                      • Allow me to add instant results for certain queries.

                                        See https://duckduckgo.com/api - it'd be nice to have pluggable "instant" results, much like calculator results on Bing.

                                        • Verified Product Reviews

                                          I find that often I have to filter through "fake" review sites which are really aimed at marketing a particular product in order to find actual user reviews. It would be really great to have some way to skip through the junk and get feedback from actual users, quickly.
