New Search Function at Yahoo!

Yahoo has released an interesting specification for developers, the embedded Y! search functionality which enables you to create a search window within a page and specify the contents of the search results by a block of text in your page or even just a keyword. You define the parameter, whether it is Y! news, the content of particular site, or group of sites, by controlling the query string. This is all managed with a little javascript.

What this could mean is a bigger role for Yahoo in the search game.

For an example, go here and click on the Y! search icon. Let us know your thoughts at dev@cognitivelabs.com.
