Friday, July 10, 2009:
Yahoo! has announced a new Search feature that lets people capture, organise, save and share information they find while researching online. Search Pad provides a new search experience that is especially valuable for people conducting extensive research in categories such as academic, health, jobs, travel or shopping, says the company.

Search Pad automatically recognizes when people are conducting research and allow them to capture information and websites found in their search results. Once activated, Search Pad automatically saves recent items, including links in one integrated notepad that stays with them as they search. People can edit their notes and then print, save, email or share their Search Pad documents with family, friends, colleagues or anyone else, eliminating the need for others to do the same research.

About this upgrade Larry Cornett, vice president, consumer products, Yahoo! Search said,

“At Yahoo! Search, we are committed to understanding people’s intent and building the right tools to help them complete their most important tasks online.”

he also added, “With Search Pad, Yahoo! is providing an elegant solution that understands when valuable research is being conducted and offers a way to effortlessly gather information in one place. Yahoo! Search Pad helps people make decisions, save their work and share the best with friends and colleagues.”

Available on Yahoo! Search, Search Pad features automatic research detection; and Simple Collecting — integrated into the search experience; once research begins, it automatically collects visited websites and thumbnails.

We can do much more than just keep notes as well in Search Pad. After enabling the feature, you can e-dit, reorder and delete unwanted entries. All of your information can be saved by logging in with your Yahoo ID. You can also print out the collected data or send an email with the relevant information.
