Bing Celebrates Ramadan In Its Own Way Google Doesn’t

11 Aug, 2010

Microsoft’s Bing the only real solid competitor to Google in search engines has started celebrating the holly month of Ramdan in its own way with impressive background images such as this one:

and this one:

Google usually uses it doodle to celebrate different occasion but nothing for this Ramadan.

The holly Month of Ramdan is where Muslims fast from Dawn to Sunset from food, water and sex ( if they are married), it is the month of fighting any type of temptation, remembering the poor and becoming closer to God.

In this occasion ArabCrunch wishes all its Muslims readers Ramadan Kareem, as for non Muslims we say “happy August”, ArabCrunch Ramdan Video Message coming next.

Thank you Microsoft.

    Thanks for the post,
    Jazakum Allahu khayran, i wonder there were a survary somewhere and we posted to support making voice for having a Ramadan Theme on Google homepage as you mentioned, they used to display a graphic instead of their logo on the header, but although the votes, nothing happen, I wonder how, they control that thing, i mean they will not publish the graphic on the world-wide, it is geo-based so people from ME or Arab countries will be the only one who will view the graphic, I think Mircosoft is following that same technique anyways, Thanks Microsoft,… thanks for providing tips about the holy month Ramadan, Jazakum Allahu khayran. btw, they shots are very nice too.
    Ramadan Kareem !

    I’m officially switching to bing for my searches… no more google for my homepage.

    On second thought I’ll give google a little bit of credit as well. (although it is nice about bing’s ramadan page) According to the article below Google stays away from religious holiday’s altogether… No Merry Christmas logo either, just Happy Holidays.
