After a couple of mistakes where people thought they’d seen it release (when actually they’d just been randomly selected for early access), the updated version of search is now in production at www.live.com
Yes. I know you use Google. For the last year or so I’ve had both Google and Live on my IE search box. IE stays open for days at a time, when I can’t get what I want on Live I run the search again on Google, the act of doing that makes Google my default Search Engine, when I can’t what I want there, then I go back to Live. These days I’m doing most of my searches in Live. That wasn’t true a year ago. The new build has some slight cosmetic / UI improvements and at first sight seems a lot snappier. Go on, try it: you might like it
