Notable changes include the list of real-time search suggestions, and a list of related searches (called “Explorer Panel” on the left side of the search results), based on semantic Powerset technology that Microsoft bought in 2008.
On July 29, 2009, Microsoft and Yahoo! announced that Bing would replace Yahoo! Search.This change was implemented in early 2012
The first public beta (limited version) of Windows Live Search was developed on March 8, 2006, with the final version on September 11, 2006. It included, news, images, music, desktop, local and the Microsoft Encarta encyclopedia.
Windows Live Search aimed to cover more than 2.5 million queries each month, which were “more useful, providing consumers with the best access to information and more accurate answers to their questions”. A configuration menu was available in Internet Explorer to change the default search engine. This search engine is in third place in terms of ranking with 0.27%.
