The good folks at Google, Yahoo and MSN announced some sweet stuff for Web search aficionados this week.
MSN: From the MSN Search blog post entitled Extending the MSN Search Toolbar we learn that the first of many add ins for the MSN Search toolbar is now available. The weather add in for MSN Toolbar is something I've wanted in a browser toolbar for a while. There is also information for developers interested in building their own add ins.
Google: From the Google Weblog post entitled The linguasphere at large we learn that Google has launched the Google Search engine in 11 more languages bringing to total number of languages supported to 116. The coolest part of this announcement is that I can now search Google in Yoruba which is my dad's native tongue. Not bad at all.
Yahoo: The last but not the least is the recent announcement about the Next Generation of Yahoo! Local on the Yahoo! Search blog. The launch showcases the integration of ratings and reviews by Yahoo! users with mapping and local information. This kind of like Yahoo! Maps meets CitySearch. Freaking awesome. Yahoo! continues to impress.
