    Yahoo has beaten Google in innovation this time. Yahoo has launched http://axis.yahoo.com/, which allows you to enter your search, and see the visual results, without leaving the page you are on.

    Axis is available for download across iOS devices and as a desktop plug-in for HTML5-enabled browsers.


    On
    http://businesstoday.intoday.in/story/facebook-launches-iphone-camera-app/1/184842.html, iPad, iPod touch, Axis serves as a standalone mobile browser app. On the desktop, Axis is a browser plug-in that works with Firefox 7+, Safari v5+, Internet Explorer 9 and all versions of Chrome.

    Axis gives people instant answers and visual previews so they can explore content without interruption. Once on a search results site, Axis also lets people simply swipe or click to the next result.

    Even if Axis becomes somewhat popular, it will have an effect on Google's market share.

    Yea this could change the way search is conducted and makes it more important to be in the top 10 since it displays images of the page

    It also means that actual page design is also very important,usually traffic by keyword search is based on your position for it,but people start passing up sites based on design quality.

    This is too early to call it as a game changer, because we don't know what is google working on at the moment. However it is a step in the right direction from yahoo. It looks pretty good and think the first 7 results are going to get more eyeballs than ever. (No 10 results, just 7 results in my web browser), will check in my iPhone soon.

    I don't think so, when I checked it, it showed up only the mobile version of the sites (whenever the sites have a mobile version), which is naturally just title and description.

    Well, I hope so, but Monopoly is the main problem here. Once a company holds 80% of the market it begins to make huge changes and feel like it's a Boss. If yahoo were in the google shoes, I believe they would behave just like google nowadays.

    I don't know if this can barely beat Google.

    I thought Google already have this? Not sure about mobile devices, but for web searches, you can see a cached image on the right side of your search.

    Well, google kind of has the "full page review" for each link in the search result.

    After looking at the video on the axis page it does look interesting. The biggest problem
    i see is that it is a standalone app for the phones and you need to get a plugin for your
    browser to use it... Not really the best solution their. If it is ALL made in html5 they
    should have just built it server side and let only devices that can handle html5 good.
    But i'm guessing they are probably using elements that aren't handled by html5 so they
    need that extra code to run on your end.

    Once again i don't know how people will react to having to go from having 1 browser for
    it all, to having to have to download this to just search.

    Nowadays if it isn't easy its not going to go far.
