Bing - New Stuff Coming From Bing This Spring - Search Blog - Bing Community

See the full post for more details and this page for additional Bing resources

To start we wanted to focus on doing more to help users with the tasks they turn to search to help them with. Our research showed that 42% of sessions require refinements, searching sessions are getting longer, and we see that many of those refinements happen when trying to complete common tasks. At launch, we introduced Quick Tabs in the Explore Pane (left rail) to give customers 1-click tools to help refine queries and help them go from question to decision. For example, when planning a trip, Quick Tabs anticipate the intent of the task a customer wants to accomplish and provide shortcuts for key planning activities such as weather, events, and maps. These quick tabs adapt based upon the user intent, and match the things you would expect when looking for a travel destination. The goal is to help you make a more informed decision with less time and effort.
