Scoble tells that Microsoft Search is close to Google Search in accuracy.
… I just tried a few searches and, indeed, it’s a lot better than it used to be. They’ve significantly closed the gap with Google.
… It’s also fast and the UI is nice. I think it matches Google all the way around on search. …
Now, the problem is, if Microsoft matches Google, who will switch away from Google? I won’t. The trust I’ve built since the late 1990s of searching Google many times a day without a problem is going to be a very hard thing to beat. To get me to switch Microsoft will have to be better than Google.
How about you? Does Microsoft (or Yahoo or Ask) have any hope of getting you to switch your default search engine?
I tried it on the search terms that I know best. Indeed, Live.com is getting better — though it is not nearly as good as Google overall.
The real story is how crappy the Yahoo.com results are in comparison. Do not use Yahoo for search.
