Bing’s HTML5-enabled site starts rolling out

Bing has started to roll out its new Metro-fied HTML5-enabled version, with users reporting the typical Windows Phone-like search buttons, smoother page transitions that fade in and out  and navigation tabs (maps, images, videos, etc.) now persistently floating at the top of the page.

BingWatch, who obviously keeps a close eye on these things, reports the following changes:

Text links to all eight sections include “Images,” “Videos,” “Shopping,” and others are now being moved to the top navigation bar.  The Facebook icon and the number of “Like” also moved up a little bit.  The new homepage also spotted with a larger font size for today’s hot topics "Popular now" at the bottom of the page.

The old homepage has eight vertical links to sections include Images, Videos, and others, at left, on top of today’s background photo. The new homepage moved those eight links to the top navigation bar, on top of the screen, and re-arranged horizontally.

Probably the best way to experience it is to try it out yourself at Bing.com.
