I’ve never been a homepage person, as my workflow is open IE > Bing it through searchbox OR type in URL directly > View page. But with the new Bing experience I’ve started to appreciate the user experience that it provides with the aesthetically pleasing background images.

Check out Bing Image Archive to see more of the cool background images. There is even a Bing Photo Contest on Facebook to have users’ summer travel photos voted to be put on the Bing.com homepage
