Bing.com just went live. Here are a few pointers to get you started.

1. Use the full version of Bing

If you don't live in the US (or probably North America), you will see a localized version of Bing.com with some features missing. To get all the features, go to this page and set your location to United States.

2. See videos preview

If you used the trick above, you now have a "Videos" section on the left. Search for everything you want and hold your mouse over a video: the video will start playing.

3. Save and Email search results

You can save your search history on to a local folder inside Bing or to your Windows Skydrive account. Alternatively, you may send your search queries to a friend via email or publish them on your Facebook wall via Bing. You’ll need Silverlight to share queries in Bing.
