Features: track shipments

Ever see one of these on your door?

One of the definite time-saving advantages that Bing has over Google is the ability to track packages right on the search results page.  If you search Bing for FedEx and UPS, you’ll see a box where you can enter your tracking number without having to click over to their website first!  Check it out:

fedex

For comparison, Google does not have the same feature:

fedexgoogle

I also tested USPS and DHL, but neither Bing nor Google provided tracking for those companies via the search results page.  This is a great feature to have on Bing; it saves time through bypassing the page where you need to select your location (Fedex and UPS have this), when you don’t have a direct link to your tracking number, or when you get one of those sticky notes on your door.
