Neowin noticed that IE9 Beta wasn't the only new thing from Microsoft yesterday, the company also introduced a new Bing homepage that takes advantage of HTML5. This new homepage is expected to preview next month, and should replace the current homepage within the next few months.
The updated search engine will answer back at Google's instant search results with their very own kind of search improvements, including taking the power of HTML5 and introducing it into their home page.
The new improvements will allow for an animated home page using the Canvas HTML5 tag. Bing demonstrated an animated beach home page, where the water crashes onto the beach, all without the use of additional plug-ins or video.
