Bing integration with Chrome


I had previously written about how you can search on Google from a new tab in Chrome. Back then the feature only worked only if your default search engine in Chrome was Google. Recently, the feature seems to be extended to Microsoft’s Bing search engine too. If your default search engine in Chrome is Bing, you can go ahead and search right from a new tab. Not only, the Bing search box is available, it also comes with “complete integration” i.e. the behavior of the search box is same as you would experience on Bing’s home page with features such as entity information box (as seen in the image) and entity disambiguation integrated into the search box inside of Chrome. In today’s world of walled gardens, it’s welcome to see such steps.
