Bing's homepage never fails to amuse me

If I was paid a dollar for every time I see someone knock Bing on the internet (including the IRC), I'd probably be a millionaire at minimum. That's alright though, because it all comes down to personal preference.

Google has a pretty bland homepage. Sure, Google Now left me a "Happy Birthday!" notification message, but Bing always seems to do the little things like this better. They don't make neat homepages anymore like they used to. I guess it wasn't worth having a few guys hired to take care of this kind of stuff?

Anyways, once you imagine a wish and you click the "Make a wish" button, you get this:

There's a neat animation that transitions from that image to the next. Sadly this PC that I use probably isn't up to the cut when it comes to screen capture, but I did pull the video animation from the page's HTML though.

Anyways, if you want the source background image, you can get it here.
