Microsoft Launches Beta Release of SearchTogether Plugin

by , Comments

Three months ago, Microsoft announced three projects they were working on to enhance the search experience. One of those projects, SearchTogether, has been launched into beta. SearchTogether is a free Internet Explorer plugin that allows groups to collaborate on search. The plugin displays a sidebar in the IE Browser and features:

  • Group query histories
  • Split searching
  • Page-level rating and commenting
  • Automatically-generated shared summaries
  • Peek-and-follow browsing
  • Integrated chat

Here are some ideas from Microsoft on how to use the plugin:

  • Business colleagues can perform joint research and share information on projects.
  • Students can likewise collaborate on group reports and assignments.
  • Friends often work together to find entertainment opportunities or housing.
  • Families can SearchTogether to jointly plan vacations or find medical information for a loved one

What do you think of the plugin? Are you going to give it a try? Let us know in the comments.
