Webware 100 winner: Yahoo Shopping

Yahoo Shopping is part search, all commerce.

      Yahoo Shopping is Yahoo's e-commerce site. It lets you search for items listed online and highlights some of the good deals from around the Web. In addition to its own search tool, it employs deals from various online partners including Woot.com for a special version of Woot aimed specifically at Yahoo shoppers.

      While Google's shopping tool focuses mainly on search, Yahoo Shopping takes more of a directory approach. You can browse products from all over the Web in a giant catalog. It also keeps track of some of the most popular deals from its members, forming a hot list that might help shoppers find potential deals. Despite its directory like approach, Yahoo Shopping's strength relies around its price comparison engine, which it gained in 2004 with the acquisition of European start-up Kelkoo.
