Live.com: The New Microsoft Search Site

By: Lion Inside - Published:   Updated: Apr 27 2011 • References: live & drs.ch
After one year research and tests Microsoft launched yesterday her new search site "live.com". The goal is obvious: fight against the google monopol.

Implications - It will be interesting to see if this new endeavor proves successful in challenging Google's search engine dominance. Ultimately, Live.com lacks the same quirky appeal of a site like Google -- something that could prove to make it an ineffective challenger. Stacked up against Microsoft is the fact that Google's brand name has become synonymous with internet searching, so they have an uphill battle ahead of them when it comes to changing this fundamental truth. Either way, the next few years should prove to be very interesting as this ongoing competition unfolds.
