Yahoo! is no longer just another search engine as it has released its very own Axis Search Browser. The technology giant has guaranteed to change the very complexion of the search world by joining forces with Axis. Considering the fact that Google Chrome recently stole Internet Explorer’s title of the world’s most used web browser, one must wonder, how will Yahoo ever manage to defeat not only Google Chrome but Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Safari too.

Senior Vice President, Yahoo! Inc, Shashi Seth explains as:

“Searching through links has outlived its utility. It’s an innovative new mobile browser and desktop plug-in that gives people visual search results (as they type), ultimately providing a more direct path to whatever they’re looking for online.”

What’s New?

Ever searched something using Google? As we start typing, the search bar offers us a variety of our possible desired searches which by chance happen to be the world’s most searched keywords. Yahoo aims to take its search options in a similar way like Google, but by expanding and improvising it in order to take it to a whole new level. As the user will type the concerned search by using Yahoo’s new browser on either iOS or PC version, Axis will be able to offer the user Google-styled-results but in the form of thumbnail-sized web pages.

Yahoo’s contribution with Axis to redefine search aims to reach new heights and to regain the reputation it had once when the Internet was nowhere near the verge of the need of a “search engine”. The whole idea is based on a single concept that ‘people do not want links; they want results’.

Yahoo Axis allows instant search with visual previews so that users can continuously discover and explore content without interruption. Axis’ sleek design keeps people moving forward rather than constantly returning to a page of endless blue links. Once on a search results site, Axis also lets people simply swipe or click to the next result.

It is really early to say, given all this new unique methodology, what mark will Axis leave on iOS and the vast world of the Internet as a whole.
