Livesearch on AlltheWeb
Today we are introducing a new search technology called Livesearch on AlltheWeb. It helps you find what you want faster, by showing search results instantaneously as you type. Livesearch also shows related queries, spelling suggestions, and enables you to use keyboard shortcuts to help you find the right query faster to get to the results that you want. As some of you might be thinking, this is an evolution of Instant Search and other search technologies weï¿½ve been working on.
Personally, I hope this will level the playing field between my wife and I. You see, even though I work for Yahoo! Search, she has a PhD in communications research, and is clearly the better searcher. When we look for the same topic, she always finds the right answer before I do.
But now, the tables will be turned! Livesearch has that uncanny knack of figuring out exactly what is on my mind. As soon as I start to type a query, Livesearch suggests the right query and shows me the results page before I even press a search button. For example, I wanted to look for ï¿½mission impossible 3ï¿½. Just as I finished typing ï¿½missionï¿½, Livesearch is already recommending ï¿½mission impossible 3ï¿½ as the search, and then instantaneously shows me the results page. I am looking forward to surprising my wife with my new found speed next time we search together. Heh.
Give the product a try and then use our feedback form and message board to let us know how we should evolve and improve the Livesearch product for you in the future. Since it's a beta, we will be making improvements as we go. For example, weï¿½d like to support Safari, so drop us a line if youï¿½d like to see that.
AlltheWeb is a search destination that has its roots as a showcase of new and innovative technology - for example AlltheWeb was the first site to roll out the calculator functionality within the search box. The site will remain true to its roots as we continue to introduce new technologies there in the future.
