Yahoo! A better Image Search Engine than Google

image Yahoo makes some major changes to its image search that kicks off Yahoo above the Google. Although, Google have more collection of images, but Yahoo’s image search is just more pleasing to use.

New image preview page features by Yahoo:
• A search box with search assistance to let you quickly and easily search for more images.
• More image search results (so you don’t have to hit the back button to see your other options).
• Suggestions based on queries from other users making similar searches.

Preferred image size

New Yahoo Image Search!

You can search image in preference to their size that also includes custom size. Moreover you can also opt that whether you want color or black & white images. You can also filter the images from Flickr.

Google had not given this type of independency yet. This is an impressive change by the Yahoo, satisfying me totally.

Also, it now has a slideshow feature, which displays the image preview at the bottom of the page, so that you don’t have hit the back key again and again.

The slide show feature.

Welcome “Yahoo!” to the world of “twitter”

"Hello" to the world of twitter from Yahoo. Yahoo got inspired by top 40 brands including General Motors, Honda and Ford and decided to be on Twitter on 10th Feb’09. Nicki Dugan, on Yahoo corps Blog shared that they got 200 followers just after five hours being on Twitter. They have a wonderful Twitter page background which reflects the brand power of Yahoo. Now you can also follow Yahoo on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/yahoo

Yahoo might aim to buy Twitter in the same way as they did with Flickr in past days. Tried the Facebook but not successful, now I think Yahoo will as Yahoo is powered by $$.
