Yahoo Answers have also been integrated in Bing’s Quick Previews. If Yahoo Answers appears in your search results related to your query, Bing will show you the full question in the preview box. Here’s a screenshot, also from Microsoft News:


When Bing launched Quick Previews (for those unfamilar with the features, it pre-dated Google’s Instant Previews, but is a much simpler text-based preview than Google’s offering), users were simply shown more information about the site by hovering over the arrow. Now, users can also find links to popular links/sections on the website, address info, contact information, and more.
