Microsoft does not normally release data on the performance of its in-house search engine and browser. However, a new leaked slide may give an idea of how Bing and Edge are doing. Apparently, Bing has over 450 million monthly active users and handles 10.5 Billion queries per month.

Microsoft Bing is distinctly in Google's epic shadow as search engines go. However, a new leak allegedly showing its user-counts show that it is still doing well for itself. It has been posted by WalkingCat on Twitter, and comes in the form of a slide that shows its figures as regards its active users and hits. The slide also gives similar details on other aspects of Microsoft's search services, including the Windows 10 Search Box and Microsoft Search in Bing.

It indicates that Bing handles 10.5 Billion queries "per month", and has over 450 million monthly active users. Edge, together with its inbuilt News feed, allegedly attracts the same number of users per month. Bing Ads apparently has over 300000 clients, whereas its API attracts 10000 partners

The slide also suggests that the Windows Search Box has about 196 million monthly active users, whereas the Microsoft Search in Bing pulls in 276000 monthly active users. On the other hand, this material does not include the dates or time-scales that apply to it, making this apparent tip only so useful.

In any case, the figures implied in its content still show that, with an estimated 168 billion individual searches per month, Bing is still a distant second to Google.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
