"This is a big moment we are taking out our slingshots and taking on Goliath," Microsoft UK's managing director and vice president of consumer and online, Ashley Highfield told the Guardian.

In a dig at rival Google, which dominates the search space, Highfield added: "People feel overawed by the internet and what they turn up when they are searching. We are also in a world where people have forgotten there is an alternative search engine."
