Microsoft Corp launched the beta version of its new MSN Toolbar Suite on Monday, with what it calls is 'breakthrough desktop search functionality' that will help users quickly find virtually any type of document, media file or e-mail message on their Windows-based personal computer.
The software giant says that the new search tool is will see to it that consumers now do not spend valuable time sifting through an enormous amount of information. Instead, they can quickly find exactly what they need.
The integrated suite of tools streamlines the process of finding and acting on information from PCs by combining the ease of a Web search with the richness and power of the PC environment.
The free suite of MSN search tools is available now in English in the United States at http://beta.toolbar.msn.com/. It will be global available next year.
The new MSN Toolbar Suite includes an updated version of the MSN Toolbar for Microsoft Internet Explorer and new toolbars that are accessible through Windows and Microsoft Office Outlook.
The new toolbars include the MSN Deskbar for the Windows desktop, MSN Toolbar for Microsoft Office Outlook and MSN Toolbar for Microsoft Windows Explorer.
"With MSN Toolbar Suite, consumers can now search their desktops from within the popular applications on their PCs," said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president for the MSN Information Services and Merchant Platform division at Microsoft, in a media release.
The applications provide the following benefits:
Recently, Microsoft launched its Internet search service, throwing itself into open competition with established giants like Google and Yahoo.
Analysts say that the move could be a setback to its competitors as the service would be incorporated in Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser, which sells as an integral part of the Windows platform that equips 90 per cent of personal computers sold around the world.
The company, which had been working on the search engine for the past 18 months is eyeing a larger share of revenue by combining Internet search and advertising.
