Yahoo, Microsoft Gain On Google


Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Yahoo, Microsoft Gain On Google (Techweb)

I told you MSN Search was one to watch… I didn’t realise it would be hitting the headlines quite so quickly, though. I think that it could make serious inroads into Google’s dominance by the end of the year.

On another topic altogether, this is my 200th post. If you’ve been with me from the beginning, then thank you for keeping reading. And if not… well never mind, I’m sure there’ll be another 200 posts for you to read in the future. Or else, have a flick through the archives.

Happy 200th!

This 200th post was filed under: News and Comment, Technology.
