Bing continues to evolve towards Bing 2.0. They recently introduced Visual Search which uses their Silverlight engine. They are now working on their maps feature which now is heavily utilizing Silverlight. It looks pretty neat and one might say it actually looks cooler than Google. Functionality is called into question but it actually does work.
If Microsoft continues using their Silverlight feature this effectively, they could actually 1up Google. I have to say the technology looks really good. Time will only tell if Microsoft can keep grabbing market share in the search market and actually compete with Google.
For now, Bing is coming along nicely
