Why Bing Chat AI is not that helpful in searching for things online?

There’s no doubt that Bing Chat is by far the smartest move by Microsoft and it has already yielded good results for the company. However, with Bing Chat suggesting only the top-ranking pages over its interface, users are now thinking otherwise. 

When one searches for different keyphrases over the new Bing, they are waiting for smart and intelligent answers to appear as the results. Displaying the top pages from Google or Bing is not the ideal way to showcase its intelligence.
