Bing Testing Feature to Open Search Results in New Tab

Bing is running a limited test right now in their search results that allows searchers to open individual search results in a new tab automatically.

Here is what it looks like:

 

As you can see, when you mouseover an individual result,  it shows a new tab icon, with a “Click here to open in a new tab.”

Bing is doing this for both the regular search results as well as for Bing Ads results too.

With many searchers electing to open search results in a new tab, this does make it easier for those to quickly open different search results in a new tab.  And it might suggest to those who don’t do that regularly to try it.

This seems to be a very limited test at this time, as I am unable to replicate it.

Thank you to Frank Sandtmann for noticing this test.
