Microsoft has added a new ‘Popular Now’ section to its Bing search engine in the US, UK, Germany and France, a feature designed to let you see daily news trends by glancing at the homepage.

Each day, Bing’s editorial team monitors trends and topics and updates them on the Bing homepage. The section is located at the bottom right of the page – you can see today that the Quebec shooting, UK Cabinet reshuffle and Keira Knightley are the hot topics in the UK today:
