'Microsoft demonstrates search engine'

Kumo, the provisional name under which the Microsoft search engine is known, is expected to be shown to the public for the first time next week. The new variant must be able to handle the battle with Google better than Windows Live Search. That reports the Wall Street Journal.

Kumo, the provisional name under which the Microsoft search engine is known, is expected to be shown to the public for the first time next week. The new variant must be able to handle the battle with Google better than Windows Live Search.

That reports the Wall Street Journal. According to the newspaper, the search engine would be demonstrated to the public at All Things Digital, a technology conference in the United States.

Google has a market share of 60 percent, where Microsoft has to do with just 8 percent. The software giant therefore benefits from entering into a struggle in the hope of being able to conquer the market.

Should Kumo beat Google in time, then it seems logical that a collaboration with Yahoo is definitely off the track. A collaboration with Yahoo the two could, or should, strengthen against Google. Last year Yahoo swept several times a takeover bid from Microsoft.

According to Microsoft, Kumo brings more relevant search results than Yahoo or Google. The question is whether users are so easy about steps of their usual search engine. Kumo should cost the user less time to search for the right results because it is offered in different categories.
