Google is threatened

The Washington Post comments on the anticipated launch of Microsoft's search engine this week. Rumors have spread that the search engine is supposed to target Google, just as Internet Explorer was developed to target Netscape. Despite Microsoft's announcement that they would "catch up, and [...] surpass" their competitors, a speaker of the Times of London, which has been given a sneak-preview of the new system, announced that it will most probably follow the "clean lines of Google." Experts predict that technically the search engine will not reach up to the standards of Google yet: "The preview that begins Thursday won't include technology to let people search their own computer desktops as well as the broader Internet. But the company has promised that desktop search functionality by the year's end," announced Associated Press Nov. 12th.
