The Microsoft News Blog noticed Bing testing out a new user interface for the vertical search engine links. Instead of having the links to the vertical search properties on the middle section left hand side of the page, the links are at the top.
A Microsoft spokesperson told us, “We’re constantly updating and refining the Bing search experience, and before any changes are implemented they undergo intensive testing and experimentation to ensure the best possible user experience. However, we have no news to share at this time.”
Here is a picture of the Bing home page as I see it versus what The Microsoft News Blog saw as a test.

Personally, I find the current interface better and the test, a step back.
