Bing rounds up the best of its homepage imagery - downloadable theme available

The ongoing Bing vs. Google debate is not one that has any intention of ending soon, but it is hard to state that Google’s homepage can ever be more breathtaking than some of the imagery supplied by the Microsoft team for Bing.

In honor of the great imagery that has been used over the past year, Microsoft released a list of the most popular Bing homepages along with a downloadable theme for Windows 8 that you can access after the break.

The top ten pieces of photography capture life around the world in Singapore, Spain, New York, California, Hawaii, Seychelles, Chicago, Rhode Island, Nevada, and England. Much to the enjoyment of our English writer, Richard, England has topped out as the number one Bing homepage.

You can head over to Microsoft’s blog by clicking here to view the full list along with all imagery. You can also download the Windows 8 theme including all the imagery by clicking here.

What is your favorite part about Bing?

Bing rounds up the best of its homepage imagery - downloadable theme available


I'm already using Bing Desktop (with the Start Screen showing the esktop wallpaper), allong side Bing on my lock screen.

Irrelevent, but I'll answer anyway:

I beleive the T-Mobile varriant is currently getting Update 3, but no word on other carriers and Lumia Black.

If just the Bing lockscreen on Windows Phone would update correctly... Apperently it updates BEFORE midnight, therefor always showing me the image of the day before.

And If I could just have Bing image as my wallpaper WITHOUT having this search box on my desktop.

I love todays Bing background. I'm now using a tool that automaticaly downloads the image every day and places it in a folder that syncs with SkyDrive and so is used as my lockscreen for Windows 8.1 on all my devices, amazing! And the collection keeps growing!

I still get them. When pressing the search capacitive button to open Bing or going to Bing.com in IE using my 920. The squares only appear when touching the background photo when using the search capacitive button. They appear on their own when at Bing.com.

Merry Christmas!

The background images were the reason I started using bing. After that I just got used to it and transistion from using it only on my phon eto also on my pc.

My God I've been waiting for this all year, bing images are totally awesome I've always wondered if i could download them
