Bing aims for evergreen

Microsoft seems to have already accepted that using Chromium saves you a lot of trouble, so it will also be what you use for your Bingbot. To a large extent I think it’s positive news for SEO, because it makes the way in which the two search engines (good, one and a half) analyze websites a little more uniform.
