Yahoo just released a new search engine...and it's unique

Postposted on Fri May 25, 2012 12:18 am

Hahaha, before you write me off as crazy, Yahoo just released this new search engine called "Axis" and rather than just displaying a hyperlink, it displays a picture of the webpage as your typing your search engine query.

http://axis.yahoo.com/

It is a small download that gets installed and I have to say, it's certainly different. In the bottom right hand corner of your browser is a small search bar. When you click the search bar, it'll expand to 1/4 of your screen and show the home pages of your search query. When you click off it minimizes right away.

I think this is pretty neat and will be using it some more. One big disadvantage is if you have slow internet.

It has a security vulnerability as well. ENJOY.

Name me one thing that DOESN'T have a security vulnerability.

Sounds exactly like Google result "details"

That has been around for so long that I can't even remember what google did with the space to the right of your results before it existed.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. However, my signature is neither my best friend, nor is it my life. I also have no desire to master it and my worth is not signature-dependent.

Agreed, but when the vulnerability has been made public, i would stay away from that application, atleast till patch is not released.

It's not a unique idea but it's a unique approach. I admire what they're doing.
I don't admire the guy in the demonstration video, though. His neck is too long.
