As rumored, MSN has rereleased its new search engine to the public today. However, the new technology is appearing on the MSN Search Beta site rather than the flagship MSN Search site for now. Chris Sherman has a full review of what you'll find at the beta site in today's SearchDay: Microsoft Unveils its New Search Engine - At Last. Some related blog posts to also consider:
- No, Microsoft's Not A Google Killer. Nor A Yahoo Killer: Covers how Microsoft is not going to do a
Netscape to Google and Yahoo.
- MSN Search Technology To Debut (Again) This Week: Puts past releases from MSN of its new search
technology into perspective with this latest move -- plus goes all the way back to 1998 to track milestones in Microsoft's progress toward owning its own search engine.
- Coincidentally, Google's Index Size Jumps: Looks at how Google slips in to steal one of Microsoft's planned talking points, that of being the "biggest" search engine out there.
