Microsoft defends Bing against AV-TEST claims

Testing was inaccurate, company claims.

If you're kidding, then that's hilarious. If not, I hope you're not one of those people who searches something like "stumbleupon" in google when it would take less time and effort to just add the ".com" in the URL.


Anyways, Windows' default search engine is Bing, and if Bing really is the most insecure, I think it's pretty ironic how Windows is also the most insecure OS (in terms of infections, Windows is actually pretty good in terms of hacking).


While Bing may supposedly be the most insecure search engine, Internet Explorer seems to be more picky about what you download than other browsers. AFAIK, IE doesn't actually scan anything but it is a lot less trusting than other browsers. Maybe that's MS's way of making up for Bing's crappier security.

Haha funnily enough I was being serious, but I'm also not one of "those" people. It was when I first booted up Windows 7 on my rig, had to use Internet Explorer...

Well needless to say being used to Chrome, Opera, Safari and Firefox, I looked upon IE with horror and... I panicked. I just clicked on the first open bar and quickly typed "google", it happened to be Bing. I then proceeded to download Chrome and closed IE, never again...

Perfectly understandable - I'm glad you're sane. Being a linux user, I don't have to deal with that problem. For the very little bit that I use Windows, I can deal with Bing once in a while.

Fun fact about the "energy-saving" claims of that site: an LCD draws (ever-so-slightly) more power displaying a black image than a white image, assuming it doesn't have a dynamic contrast feature that drops the backlight level down. OLED displays, by contrast, are the opposite.

Okay, not so fun. A fact, nevertheless.
