MSN Search goes slimline

MSN are taking a leaf out of Google’s book and have redesigned their search engine wth a minimalist theme in mind. Whilst the move is sure to increase MSN’s market share, they are going to lose tens of millions of dollars in lost advertising revenue, as the new search engine will not include any paid inclusions or sponsored links.

MSN Search is still based upon Yahoo’s technology – for now that is. They are working on a system of their own, which can be previewed at this address http//techpreview.search.msn.com/
