Popular online search engine Yahoo! on Tuesday launched an improved search module that would allow users to save and organise pages looked for by them on the web and access it from any computer, instead of beginning a fresh process every time.
The search module 'My Web 2.0" unveiled by Yahoo! India, enables users to save, organise and tag actual web pages and bookmarks on a personal account and recall them from any computer, a company release said in New Delhi.
The module, helps users to save the search results in a personalised 'my web' account and enables them to share their results with friends and a broader community of people with similar interests, a company statement said.
"My web 2.0 creates a personal online web archive for a user by saving his favourite pages, search results, and history to his personal account. The user can save, organise and find pages in a sequential manner making it easier to organise the saved pages. The search module also makes the contents of the saved web page searchable", it said.
"The Internet is becoming more community-orientated and users want access to trusted information. We see social search as the next phase of web search. My Web helps users tap into the power of communities, using tagging and sharing to improve their search experience," Yahoo! India Managing Director George Zacharias said.
