Microsoft Europe’s communication team has used its Twitter account to make fun of Google’s latest search page feature: the ability to add background images to said page, a feature that has characterized Microsoft’s Bing search service since its debut.

First thing I tried to do was change the background and it asked for my Google Account... I just don't have one

I want white back!

First they changed the layout to match Bing's style closer, now they change the image... Is Google a little scared?

I only liked google because it's simple and clean. All they have done is made it a little more laggy and resembled it to bing. one of the biggest fails since superman fought chuck norris.
