Yahoo! launched its own browser for mobile and desktop browser extension
Yahoo today announced “Axis”, which is an add-on for web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer) and also an application for IOS. The idea is that you can enter Axis a search and go directly to a page, skipping the step of reading a lot of links in the results. That goal is not met, but still Axis offers an interesting way to present the results for you to visit a website.
For example, the results will be many more pictures and screenshots, making the results much more visual. On the desktop, Axis installed a bar at the bottom of the browser that allows you to search. Clicking on it will display up, showing different menus such as “trend searches are” showing next to the main headlines for the search and then a series of screenshots of websites.
Thus, we present the results more beautiful than what we normally see, and integrated with the browser without the person having to leave the page you are visiting, because the results are displayed on the page.
On mobile devices with IOS, Axis is a full browser, and integrates searching in the same manner as in the desktop. The use of large images leverages the capabilities of touch screens. If you have a Yahoo account, you can also synchronize your searches between the browser and your iPhone or iPhone.
If the idea is successful, could bring more traffic to Yahoo, we all know that has been lost in the hands of competitors.
