Baidu.com Gets Ready For IPO

Although a specific date hasn't been set yet, stories about Chinese web search engine Baidu.com, and its upcoming IPO continue to appear. The AP's Joe McDonald does a nice roundup of info about the company.

  • The article offers bio details about company founder, Robin Li.
  • A definition of the word Baidu.
  • The article also mentions that Google owns 2.1% of Baidu.com while Yahoo owns 3721.com, another Chinese search engine.

The article concludes that like the Google home page, the Baidu.com home page is sparse while the 3721.com home page is "busier" like what's seen at Yahoo.com. I wonder if 3721.com also offers a clutter-free page like Yahoo does at search.yahoo.com? (-:
