Yahoo brings oneSearch to the desktop

Yahoo has launched a new search engine that aims to deliver more relevant results. The oneSearch service offers results from a number of sources, combining web pages with videos and images. Users hesitating when they enter a search query will be presented with a list of suggested search terms, allowing them to better define their query.

A search for "Windows Vista", for instance, can be expanded with words like "themes", "download" or "productivity". Yahoo launched oneSearch for mobile phones in March, allowing users quickly to narrow down a search with a minimum number of clicks. Google was quick to catch up, releasing its Universal Search in May spanning web, local, video and image search.
