I was suprised to find that MSN Search is still in Beta. I didn’t have any specific information on when this was going to go live, however I figured it would be rolled out with the new year.
We’ve been waiting for MSN to roll out their new search technology for well over a year. Most assumed it would be early 2004, then that was adjusted to late 2005 or early 2005. I seem to remember reading that MSN had a contract with Yahoo until the end of 2004, and, therefore, once that contract expired their search would roll out.
I’m very anxious for their new search to go live. I guess we keep waiting patiently.
