MSN Shopping Beta Tests New Version

MSN Tests Shopping Search Engine from MediaPost has some details about a new comparison shopping service that MSN is testing, the MSN Shopping Beta. Shopping search isn't new to MSN. It's long had a shopping area (once called eShop, now currently MSN Shopping). In fact, a link to shopping search was offered on the MSN Search site until several months ago. It was quietly withdrawn until the new shopping search is ready for a full public debut, I was told earlier this month by someone at MSN. So check out the new beta, which is meant to provide a more comprehensive round-up of products than the existing service along with other features. And expect that shopping link to return at MSN Search in the near future.
