Bing adds download file details, makes searching for technical information batter

Bing, Microsoft's search engine, has made it easier and better to search for technical information like code and application programming interface (API) references. Basically, they're unburying it and making the details more glance-able, so you'll have a greater chance of figuring out whether a particular search result is relevant to you before you waste your precious time clicking on it. Bing has also improved non-alphanumeric character support, and even pulled out the most important information about file downloads — like price, reviews, and safety warnings.

At Bing, we never stop exploring ways to improve the search experience. Whether it's making small adjustments to how we present results or major changes to the user interface, we're always looking at new approaches to help you get more done.

Over the last one year, we have been working hard to develop a more natural way for users to address technical queries. It could be someone looking to download or troubleshoot software or a programmer who wants to get the technical details of an API. In all cases, we have been making strides to make technical searches easier.

So whether you're a developer, designer, or just someone interested in all the tech-related details, head on over to Bing, type in your search, and check out all the new and improved results. Then come back here and tell us what you think about them!
