Microsoft Adds Tools to Latest Search Service

we have to give Microsoft credit for offering some interesting new features in its latest
crack at Web search: Windows Live Search . A few of the changes in this occasionally
rough beta version seem a little gimmicky, but others offer easy search customizations.
Of all the new features, we quickly came to appreciate its ability to scroll through seemingly
endless search results. A new feature is the slider control on the top right that lets you view more or less text in each listing. Unfortunately, there’s little difference among the three settings.The slider control is much more effective when you’re viewing images, as you get
six thumbnail sizes to choose from. Even better: When you hover over an image, it
enlarges slightly, and informs about it—including its URL, size, and resolution—appears
below it.
