Ke nānā nei paha ʻo Google i ka nānā iki ʻana i ka huaʻōlelo. E nānā i ka nui o ka ʻokoʻa ma waena Google's video search results a Bing's video search results. I don't often give Microsoft credit in the usability department – but they nailed this one!

Nā hopena ʻimi wikiō ʻo Bing
Mea pāʻani huli wikiō ʻo Bing
Here's a rundown of key features of Bing Video Search over Google Video Search:
- Ke kiʻi nei ʻoe i mouseover ma Bing, autoplays ke wikiō me ke kani. ʻAe ʻo Google iā ʻoe e lele ma waena o ka ʻike - akā ma hope wale o kāu kaomi ʻana e pāʻani i ke wikiō i kā lākou mau ʻaoʻao.
- Bing provides larger previews of the actual screenshot than Google – who relies on the text unnecessarily. Video is a visual medium, Bing is letting that take precedence. You can mouseover the title on Bing to get the full title if it's clipped.
- When you play the video on Bing, it's almost have the page size… fantastic – especially for new, higher definition content. Other videos are still listed underneath and can still be autoplayed when you mouse over them.
- He maʻalahi a hoʻowahāwahā i kāu koho ʻana ma ka ʻaoʻao hema ma Bing. Koi ʻo Google iā ʻoe e kaomi i ka Huli wikiō kiʻekiʻe e hiki ai i nā koho kānana like.
Google doesn't make the most elegant or prettiest of pages, but their Video Search Results page is downright unmanageable and ugly. In my opinion, Bing has done a fantastic job laying out the page and making it more usable. Searching for video is difficult – and the algorithms aren't the greatest… you tend to have to bounce around a lot. Bing's interface and usability make it much easier to search, browse and find the video you're looking for.
