Most Popular Search Engines
Live Search (formerly Windows Live Search) is the name of Microsofts web search engine, successor to MSN Search, designed to compete with the industry leaders Google and Yahoo. The search engine offers some innovative features, such as the ability to view additional search results on the same web page (instead of needing to click through to subsequent search result pages) and the ability to adjust the amount of information displayed for each search result (i.e. just the title, a short summary, or a longer summary). It also allows the user to save searches and see them updated automatically on Live.com.The service was previously powered by LookSmart results and gained top marks for having its own team of editors that monitored the most popular searches being performed to hand pick sites believed to be the most relevant. The system worked well.
