  • Most searched celebrities... Omg!....
  • Caitlyn Jenner! Proves that man is always better than woman in every way, even in being a woman!
  • Lol
  • Lol
  • they searched for Caitlyn Jenner because nobody knew who the f*** was he or she  
  • I have to ask. Are other countries as obsessed with "celebs" as Americans seem to be? I find it really telling about society today when so many are obsessed with celebs/sports stars.
  • They have entire channels/networks and shows based on celebrity gossiping and stuff. I guess they are the best at it. Personally, I couldn't give a f*ck.
  • I've lived in Chile and Norway. There ARE gossip magazines and the like in both countries, but it's not nearly such a big deal as in the US.
  • That list made me a saad panda
  • Bing is used as a search engine?
  • No i think, it's a social networking site. -_-' thug life.. :\
  • In other words, the Windows Central community's top searches of 2015.
  • It's default search on ios
  • Get a life.. Bing is a Search Engine
  • I have heard it works fine in US. Elsewhere its not used due being crappy.
  • It's good in Greece too.
  • It's ok for Singapore
  • Pretty good in UK. The local searches are great, dare I say better than Google. 
  • Joke is tired. Anyways, I've stopped using Google on a regular basis for my search in over two years because the search results and UI is much better with Bing. The only time I use Google is for their maps's Street View and even then it may not be for too long since there's more street views available on Bing now. Plus, I get credit for using Bing which I redeem for purchases on Amazon or free Hulu Plus. If you don't use Bing, but are on these comment sections to make lame jokes, then ... well, I'll just withhold any further remarks.
  • Porn? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Same thought came on my mind too.. xD
  • How can a tech website include those things man.....
  • I don't have any qualms about including that info. Got any reliable sources? You know, for research.
  • I've heard Youtube Red....
  • How to delete my comment? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Internet is for porn!
  • Guess they censored it out
  • *Why not too much Rain & Floods in Chennai made to list
    *Sunny Leone is not in the list of Celebrities
    *That Blue/Black dress is frustrating one
  • Make a indian search engine, and search for sunny Leone the whole day. Jerk.
  • Hahaha XD
  • Gahahaha wth
  • I thought the Pope's visit to the U.S. was a big social networking splash as it was happening, but I don't see it anywhere on these lists. Anywho, Bing once published a pretty neat year-in-review video that we played for everyone in the house to watch on New Year's Eve...makes it all sink in that we as a society have managed yet another year. Haven't seen one of those crop up since then.
  • Microsoft should have its own ad block application to block ads on browser on windows 10 watching u tube, student surfing etc.
  • Top 10 hentai for the weebz? :P
  • Ronaldo
  • Russia Today!
  • Everyone knows that Bing is the search engine of choice when it comes to porn..
  • I have lost faith in humanity. That celebrity list is, well.....
