  1. advanced search operators

    Google has the ability to perform some intense advanced search operators to find specific web results. I use Bing, but I go to Google whenever I need to perform an advanced search

        Have a organized list of things you searched for previously and how many times you searched it, and have a real time trending separated from your history. Localize

          • Make it easier to access the Wikipedia page for a topic

            When I search for a person, movie, show, etc. and the quick information pops up in the right sidebar, I'd like a faster way to access the Wikipedia page directly than scrolling to the bottom of the info box and clicking the small "wikipedia" link. Maybe if I could click the title in the box and have it take me to the Wiki page that would be easier.

              • Give me a link to try a query in Google after I look through a few pages, or when there are few relevant results.

                I think Google used to do this back in the day, and it could honestly benefit Bing. I usually know when Bing is going to fail and after clicking through a few pages or being met with a page of sparse results I'll type my query into Google, but it's a hassle and I'm not giving any definite information back to Microsoft about how Bing has failed.

                A "try this query on Google" link wouldn't have to be prominent, or even very noticeable at all. Maybe it would only show up for Bing Rewards Gold members, people who you know…

                  We have an update. Love the idea and can see how it could be beneficial for us and our users. We also appreciate how your suggestion thoughtfully considers some of the implementation issues we would face with a feature like this. We’ll pass this suggestion on to the right Bing teams, and while there are lots of sensitivities to implementing a feature like this, we definitely see the potential, too. Thanks again and please keep sending us your suggestions.

                • Time zone conversion

                  Maybe if I ask Bing "What time is 10am March 12 PST in Thailand" Bing can give me the answer.

                  Very useful when following a live blog or something.

                    Thanks for the idea. Bing can already do time conversions for a limited set of queries. See an example here: http://www.bing.com/search?q=pst+to+ist&src=IE-SearchBox&FORM=IENTTR&conversationid=

                    We’re working on triggering this experience for queries where a specific time conversion between two locations is requested e.g. “What time is 10am March 12 PST in Thailand”.

                    Keep your feedback coming, use it to improve Bing. Thanks!

                    • Give details about skiresorts in search

                      A search for (nearby) ski resorts should produce results with info on weather, open slopes and lifts, amount of snow and maps.

                      • Home page should show tabs for all features (wihch is missing)

                        Home page or top bar should show tabs for all features (wihch is missing)
                        For e.g. FLIGHTS tab is not shown unless I type in like e.g. "JFK to Bangalore", Then in the next page, I get to see FLIGHTS tab.

                        User wont be able to explore if these features / tabs are not made visible to them.

                          • The ability to filter out or filter in certain words or phrases

                            Being able to filter what kind of words you want from your searches to customize your search and get the results you're looking for faster would be awesome. For example if I wanted a recipe for soup but didn't want results with certain ingredients I could search: soup recipe -beef, -soy, -peas +carrots, +potatoes, +tomatoes and it would omit results of the words with the - sign and include results with words with the +sign. Or if I wanted to filter my results based on the source for example if I was doing school research I might search something like:…

                              • Ability to have download the bing backgrounds and have them auto update.

                                Bing allows you to download their daily image and set it as a background on your PC. It would be nice if you could download a something that would auto download the new images and add it to a background slide show, so you could always have new background images.

                                • Bing Personal Assistant

                                  I would like to see Bing take on the possibility of becoming a digital personal assistant. This would need to be easy, advanced, and secure to use. Anything from scheduling, calendar reminders, map travel times, organizing information (such as digital tickets) will be super helpful.

                                  • Place the Image Match icon left of the search icon.

                                    For now the Image Match feature isn't properly pushed, and with more data Microsoft could try to improve the feature, right now it's inferior to Google's offerings, but I believe with proper usage Microsoft will be able to make it superior, also please add this feature to Cortana in the same fashion as the accompanied image (as y'all've already done on the iPhone).
