Bing’s New Visual Search Tool

bing-visual-search

Bing just released its Visual Search (VS) tool which looks like they may have had somebody from Google Products working on this one. In a condensed overview; Bing’s VS tool is a new visual way to search for “stuff” besides your typical text searches it will only let you click on images to drill down onto your search results. However, you have to have the latest version Silverfox installed for it to work.
