Lastly, bridge is on Adobe's kill list- they will make an even harder push to lightroom for the next release for doing any kinds of batch editing.
There is no way Adobe will kill Bridge, Lightroom is designed for editing and storing photos, Bridge is designed for handling pretty much any image file that can be thrown at it, just look at the pathetic number of file extensions Lightroom can handle, it can't even do .psb's! Then find an image or graphic extension Bridge can't handle.
Besides anything you can do in Bridge as a Batch you can run through PS as a Batch. Do Adobe think it makes more sense to handle photo images through their photo imaging program? Probably. Bridge does best what it is designed to do, handle all kinds of files in a creative environment, Lightroom does best what it is designed for, handle photo images principally RAW files, by the tens of thousand.
First, remember this is adobe we are talking about. They do what they want. Bridge has barely change since v1 a very long time ago. One can never, ever underestimate the stupidity of adobe.
And sure enough, if you do enough reading through the adobe forums- where photogs were going ballistic over removing the export functionality - they just removed the functionality altogether.
Adobe has actually never officially responded- but they did recommend using some stupid batch export which has to open every file, process it, close it, rinse repeat. If you dont like it, then use lightroom
