Enterprise Applications: Search Comparison Sites Pit Google Against Microsoft Bing, Others
The search engine war has never been more exciting. Microsoft puttered along in the search market for years before unleashing Bing in June to take on market leader Google.

This is a pain, so programmers are creating sites that put query results from different search engines side by side.
