Yahoo! Axis an attempt to change the search gameYahoo! has just announced their latest service known as Yahoo! Axis, which is said to offer a new experience on how ordinary folk search and browse on the web. Axis has been touted to be the “only search experience that allows you to enter your search, see and interact with visual results” – and to think that you can do all of that without the need to leave the page that you are currently viewing. Axis will integrate with your favorite desktop browser, while connecting your online experiences across multiple devices automatically by default. You can give it a go today across iOS-powered devices, in addition to a desktop plug-in for HTML5-enabled browsers.

Shashi Seth, senior vice president, Connections, Yahoo! Inc., said, “Our search strategy is predicated on two core beliefs—one, that people want answers, not links and two, that consumer-facing search is ripe for innovative disruption. With Axis, we have re-defined and re-architected the search and browse experience from the ground up.”

Will the introduction of Yahoo! Axis help turn the tide of the once stock market darling where tech picks are concerned? I do hope so, as I have a sentimental attachment to Yahoo when  I was first introduced to the Internet. [Press Release]
