Bing which is isn't thought to be another "search" engine, but a "decision" engine, as they call it.
Till now there is just a preview video explaining Bing's features, but on June 3 it will apparently replace Live search as Microsoft's new default engine. Google's success is mainly their extremely fast and mainly accurate search. Another point is the simplicity and clean layout.

Obviously I have only a small share, but still, having an average visitor number of about 100 per day and if I take all the visits from search engines between 01/01/2007 to now I get the following distribution of search engines:
Let's see whether this will change ;)
