Bing is a search engine like Google, not browser like Firefox.
Not sure how to change the Default on firefox (will reseach at home tonight) - but probably similar to IE - there's a drop down arrow nect to the search - and you can select 'Change Search Defaults'.
Hey thinks for the link. I did the Google vs Bing Challenge and Bing won so I am changing to Bing. If I can figure out how to make that as my default setting.
if using Firefox, you have three options:
Preferences >> Homepage, just type in bing.com and close the pane.
In the toolbar, click the G icon and a list will drop down with search options. If bing does not show on the list, select: Manage Search Engines and click the link to ad more engines [ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-tools/ ] and download the add-on for Bing search. Restart your browser and click the icon again. Scroll to Bing and it sets automatically as your default search provider.
PS, I made the switch to Bing also and am loving it. I also use Go Duck Go.
I am switching too! I took the challenge and Bing won. Taking the challenge helped me to make the change because you can see both Bing and Google result on the page. You are asked which one you like better or you can pick undecided. I picked Bing 4 out of 5 times one undecided.
I love the features. I like to be able to choose what I want to see in search like for example I am looking for videos for my hub. I can choose to just show videos on Bing Search results.
Google Chrome is better in my opinion than Firefox being they both are actual website browsers. You can set bing as a homepage but if you are wanting a better Browser I would go with Google Chrome.

I have always used Internet Explorer and have just dealt with all of its little 'quirks' but I can't take it anymore! I can't even open capsules now or delete any to work on a hub. So how do I change to something...

Is this browser related? I saw them 2 days ago. I'm using FF 16.0.2. I know a more recent version has just been released, but I haven't updated. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

I have used all of these and found firefox good, but not as chrome, IE is losing its position. One problem I faced with chrome is, it crashes after sometime...Which one is best ?
