I’m sure Google will release an update to counter this. Seems very silly to me.

I wonder if they did this intentionally just to see what kind of feedback they’d get regarding Bing and once it was (no shocker here) almost entirely negative feedback, they swoop in like a hero and repeal it so we can all talk about how Good Guy Microsoft listens to their customers.

There was a lot of speculation to that effect in the reddit thread. They’re gonna keep pushing Bing as much as they can get away with. At least until some anti-trust fines end up happening.
