    You bring so many websites to the table everyday, how do you find all these websites?

    • Aibek Esengulov

      we browse web 24/7!

    • Aibek Esengulov

      In detail:

      – monitor several online forums and blogs for useful sites
      – large portion of apps come through mentions in comments on MUO posts
      – submissions to MakeUseOf via email

    I love collab finder. Its very useful.

  • Mike Vaz

    The Bing Desktop would be cool if I wasn’t constantly using my browser. I understand that it’s focus was simplicity but if you’re constantly using other applications on your computer isn’t it essentially just creating an extra step? Why would I want to minimize my browser or other applications to use Bing Search on my desktop when I already have Bing Search in my browser and the desktop version just pops up your browser to display the results anyway?

    • Aibek Esengulov

      That’s a good point actually. But there are also people who launch the browser when they need to lookup something. I suspect those people will find it rather handy.

  • Igor Rizvi?
