Bing overtakes Yahoo! to become 2nd most used search Engine

Google still holds a commanding 89.94%


Even through the failed attempt to acquire Yahoo! for $44 Billion, and the fact that yahoo is effectively piggy-backing off Bing’s search results (and some would say bing off google’s). Bing has proven it is a force to be reckoned with as it’s popularity increased even more. Engadget has just reported that statcounter put Google in the lead for most used search engines with 89.94% of the market share, with Bing coming in at second with 4.4 percent. Yahoo brings in third with 3.9% of the market share.

The results are the first time Google has dropped past the 90% mark. Don’t think they’re all too worried though.
