Microsoft is publicly detailing its upcoming search engine, Bing. The revamped search tool has several new features, including a left-hand navigation pane for moving among different types of searches, category breakdowns for search results, and bringing some information directly into the results page.

For health queries, Kumo now has the ability to include full articles, including content licensed from the Mayo Clinic.
