Microsoft keeps adding features to sweeten the deal for its loyal search and browser users, with the latest addition bringing background-rendered pages to Bing when it's coupled with Internet Explorer 11. Much like how Google does this trick with Chrome, Redmond's browser starts downloading the top search result before you even click it, giving near-instant page loads. What's more, the software giant says this is done in a streamlined way so it doesn't eat up battery life on mobile devices. Shaving seconds off of search times should come as welcome news for ardent (and impatient) fans of Microsoft's browsing suite -- yes, even those on Windows 7.
