Editors' Review

+
With these two programs, you will lose nothing in Internet or on your PC. MSN Search Toolbar could be a nice addition to Internet Explorer, yet it is wholly focused on Microsoft search services. You can t add other search engines. The built-in pop-up blocker handled well standard ads yet let in DHTML (fly-in) pop-ups. However, the second component does make the suite worth downloading. With Windows Desktop Search, finding a document by its contents takes seconds. The program uses the familiar Explorer interface. We found very convenient the ability to preview the contents of various documents. The program gives you full control over indexing. You can select folders and file types to index or skip. Not to slow down your computer, the program can automatically pause indexing when you work on your PC. Windows Desktop Search doesn t hog much system memory when idle. All told, the utility is a must-have if you need to quickly locate files on your PC.

    "It's OK. I guess I'm stuck with it."

    August 25, 2011   |   By pagarymac

    Version: Bing Bar 7.0.609.0

    Pros

    Can't say anything positive because I am still peeved that this version was foisted on me.

    Cons

    Does not have the sophisticated look and feel of the previous version. I hate the search bar being in the middle.

    Summary

    I had the update for V7 supressed because I preferred V6. And still one day the update was somehow sneakily foisted on me against my desires. Whatever benefit this new version provides should have been incorporated within the much better operational and visual esthetics of V6. Boo to BING.

    "B/ Bar is good when it comes to getting quick results."

    May 25, 2011   |   By etibeleirbag

    Version: Bing Bar 7.0.609.0

    Pros

    I think i like the features in 7.0.609.0 Bing Bar, although i needed more time before making fair statement.

    Cons

    If Bing Bar can only function with Internet Explorer browser, it means that the benefits of your technology will not be fully put to use.

    "BING SUCKS"

    April 14, 2011   |   By rinnie1

    Version: Bing Bar 7.0.609.0

    Pros

    NONE. There is NOTHING worthwhile about this product.

    Cons

    What it returns does NOT make any sense at all. It presents the least relevant stuff first, and the remotely relevant items are buried. If you like Google, you will LOATHE Bing. It horns in and takes over without your permission on other products...

    Summary

    TOTAL WASTE of time to use Bing. TOTAL WASTE of computer space to even install the search bar. If it were living, I'd say it uses too much oxygen. My only wish is that there were a way to give it a NEGATIVE FIVE rating.
