Microsoft Bing-Home Page
San Francisco, Jun 16: Software giant Microsoft said that it has added a porn filter to its newly launched Bing search engine. Mike Nichols, the Bing general manager said that the adults-only images and video will be served from a separate domain, 'explicit.bing.bet', so that the content can easily be barred from Bing search results.

"This is invisible to the end customer, but allows for filtering of that content by domain which makes it much easier for customers at all levels to block this content," Nichols said. Microsoft had described Bing as a 'Decision Engine' aimed at helping people make buying decisions, plan trips, research health matters or find local businesses.

The software colossus launched Bing, which replaced MSN Live Search to capture the search market which was dominated by Google and Yahoo! inc.
