Yahoo! Introduces My Web

Yahoo! introduced the beta release of My Web from Yahoo! Search (available at http://search.yahoo.com). My Web is a "personal search engine" that provides a simple way to save, recall, and share online information with friends and colleagues. It enables users to create their own personal online archive by saving their favorite pages, search results, and search history to itself. In addition, users can share their information with friends and colleagues via integrated tools such as e-mail, instant messenger, and personal networking provided by Yahoo!'s new Yahoo! 360į tool.

The My Web beta leverages the extensive user feedback generated from the launch of Yahoo!'s search history product (My Yahoo! Search) in October 2004 and includes key new features that provide the user with greater control and accessibility for their personal search experience. Users can create categories for their saved results and can annotate saved pages with personal notes. My Web lets users save both a copy of the page and the URL. Yahoo! recommends that users install the Yahoo! Toolbar with My Web as part of their My Web activation. Using the Yahoo! Toolbar in conjunction with My Web provides added convenience and ease.
