Microsoft Shows Off New 'Windows Live Search'

Microsoft has released a preview version of what will
eventually become the flagship search engine for the


based software giant. Windows Live Search is the cornerstone of Microsoft's new
"Live" campaign, which aims to unite all the companies' web services
under a single banner.

"With expected delivery in 2006, Windows Live Search will deliver powerful
and personal search services that help consumers find what they are looking for
on the Web, their desktop, their mobile device or in their local geographic
area, such as instant answers, documents, pictures, multimedia content, local
information and immersive maps. Windows Live Search will be a core element of
the overall Windows Live experience, powering compelling scenarios across the
Windows Live services."

The new search engine is concentrating on producing relevant information to the
user, while providing applicable local search results the user might find
informative. The preview also demonstrates Microsoft's brand new image and
video search, which is no longer based on licensed technology provided by
Picsearch of Sweden. Live Search has been integrated into an improved
site since March 8th, and is scheduled to 'go live' sometime this summer.
