"After months of searchbot crawls and beta testing to perfection, Microsoft officially unveiled its contribution to the search war today." February 1, 2005 Microsoft Goes Live With Search By Roy Mark ( internetnews.com) "Google's success in the search field over the last few years helped stoke the fires and prompted others to take a serious look at the market. The search leader currently dominates with almost 50 percent of all Internet searches, while Yahoo and Microsoft hold down 24 percent and 14 percent, respectively. "
The only easy day was yesterday.

Search comparison:

MSN---1,749,182 entries
Google---3,380,000 entries.

"Michael Jackson"
MSN---2,397,517 entries
Google---13,600,000 entries

"New York City"
Google--- 28,800,000

MSN--- 687,939

I know this is completely unscientific, but on the strength of the number of entries returned, Google still seems superior to MSN. I will only note that in the first instance above, Google returned the more important sites at the top of the list, while MSN did not.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I checked it out also. It is a far cry from the MSN search that was in place. Which was in my opinion horrible. I still like Google better. Although the Encarta option is kinda cool.
