Microsofts Fancy Search Option for Firefox

Has the browser war slowed down or come to an end? Has Microsoft realised the pull that Firefox has? A Microsoft add-on for Firefox lets the browser show suggested completions of a search when someone starts typing it into the search box.

Microsoft just released a Firefox add-on that makes Microsoft's search service, Live Search, work better with the open-source Web browser, Firefox. If you had any doubts that Microsoft did not see the advantages of Add-ons, you could probably dispel them now. The question is, why has the software giant not learned a lesson from Firefox? Why have they not included the ability to have add-ons in their own browser?

"We're happy to report that we've officially integrated Live Search into Firefox by popular demand," said Live Search Program Manager Beatrice Oltean and Senior Product Manager Debapriya Ray.

Microsoft is competing the likes of  Yahoo and Google to claim a bigger share of the search market. Yahoo and Google are more successful at the search advertising business. They place text ads next to search results. It must be a thriving business, otherwise why would they carry on doing it. Microsoft obviously want a piece of the pie.

The Microsoft Search add-on connects to Microsoft's search site, Live Search, to suggest completions of searches as people start typing them into the browser's search box.

Is Microsoft Giving in to Firefox, or do they have something very sneaky up their sleave? We cannot believe that Microsoft will give in. I believe that this is just another step for them in their pursuit of Cyber Space Domination. What do you think?
