Analysis says Bing overtakes Yahoo for the first time
One analysis firm shows that Bing has overtaken Yahoo! for the first time since it was created in 2009. StatCounter's analysis shows that the Microsoft search engine edged out Yahoo! in the month of February 2011.
ReadWriteWeb is quick to caution Bing enthusiasts against celebrating quite yet. StatCounter has called a Bing victory over Yahoo before, only to be disputed by other analysis firms.
The round of stats shows Bing had 4.37 percent of search share, compared with 3.93 percent for Yahoo. Google, at the top, took 89.94 percent of the search share. StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen said that this is the first time Google has dipped (however minutely) below 90 percent since summer 2009.
