New version of Bing in the works, comes with new social sidebar and three-column design

Microsoft is releasing a new version of Bing, after three years. This new version of Bing features a new social sidebar, a new snapshot feature, more relevant search results, and a refreshed user interface. And you wont have to wait long to try it, as Microsoft is planning to making it available by early June.

The three major features of the new Bing include improved web results that show faster and more relevant results using a newer and cleaner interface. Users can also complete tasks by viewing useful information related to searches (this feature is called Snapshot) all in one separate column. The new Bing will also feature a social sidebar that allows users to take action based on the recommendations of friends and experts (this will be a third column). This new three-column version of Bing will be rolled out in the coming weeks, with full availability in the United States by early June. You can sign up at www.bing.com/new to be notified of availability.
