HISTORY OF WEB SEARCH ENGINE — PART-3

Posted on at


By the year 2000, search services, founded on the search engine called Inktomi, were being provided by Yahoo!. M/s. Yahoo! managed to get hold of Inktomi and Overture by the years 2002 and 2003 respectively. Before its merger with Yahoo!, Overture had owned AltaVista and AlltheWeb. When it commissioned its own search engine derived from the shared equipment of its assets, Yahoo! had adapted to Google’s search engine as late as 2004.

 

Incorporating search data from Inktomi, Microsoft initially launched MSN Search during the fall of 1998. Merged with outcomes from Inktomi, by early 1999, the website commenced to put on show listings from Looksmart. Sometimes in 1999, MSN Search would use results from AltaVista instead. Mechanized by its specialized web crawler, known as “msnbot”, Microsoft embarked on a modification plan to its own search technology in 2004.

 

To allow the track of files in the cloud, Open Drive has now been reissued the trademark, “Cloud Kite”; Google delivered the Beta edition of Open Drive, accessible as a Chrome app, after the April 24 issue of Google Drive during the year 2012.  

 

Being a ‘joint encyclopedia project anchored in Google Drive public files and on the crowd sourcing, crowd sharing, and crowd-solving principles’, Cloud Kite is being promoted in the cyber market now. It could restore search outcomes from other cloud storage content services, e.g. Dropbox, SkyDrive, Evennote and Box as well.
