Screen scraping bing xD

I don't use bing personally, but for those who do, they can bring the same search results to irc.
Search engines are a big business and this affects the order of the results.
This was a requested script as posted in the introduction.

[18:38:56] <+ratdog> Bing! has now been rated better than google in very recent blind tests according to sofpedia article. I would like help writing a Bing! search socket for a chanel for mIRC.
This link shows some validity to this:
Just looking at the alexa stats, bing is 2nd.

I tried out Bing's blind test -

Google won 3 to 2 for me.

Am I missing something or is bingiton just redirecting to bing?

I chose Google 100% of the time. Bing just doesn't offer enough specific results for development related queries.

2:1:2 Google:Draw:Bing -- Bing didn't do very well regarding C#/.NET queries, which is ironic because Bing = Microsoft = .NET = C#. Lol.

@Hawkee I had the same trend. All 3 of the things that Google won were development related.

I understand Google uses ad data on people to help filter results, so I wonder if Bing allows that in their bingiton challenge.
