Windows Live: Microsoft's latest jab at Google Search
Microsoft has been trying to catch up with Google for years when it comes to search engine technology, but up to now, they were never really successful about it. Their latest jab at Google comes in the form of a new search portal. Their new engine has a couple of pretty interesting features (for more details, have a look at this PC Magazine article), but to tell you frankly, my first impression weren't very good. The site was awfully slow and the interface was a bit too crowded for my taste. The new scroll bar on the right of the search result page is also a pain in the rear to use.
Try it, you'll see what I mean.
Let's not judge live.com too quicky. The service is still under beta and deserves a second chance after all.
