Google isn't the only big internet company that will promote mobile-friendly websites in its search results -- Microsoft says it will soon give higher rankings to mobile-optimized sites in Bing. While the company won't push these sites at all costs (it's still interested in giving you the most relevant links), it expects these tuned pages to float closer to the top. To help things along, it's planning to release a tool that tells site operators whether or not their content is ready for smaller screens. Microsoft doesn't expect to roll out this updated search code for another few months, but it shouldn't be too long before the days of constant zooming and scrolling are over.
