Webware 100 winner: Yahoo

Yahoo is one of the world's most popular search engines.

      Yahoo Search is Yahoo's answer to Google. It originally started out as a way to search through Yahoo content and has since evolved into its own search engine for content elsewhere on the Internet. Like similar competing search engines, Yahoo lets users search through Web sites, images, and video. They can even find things close to them through their local search. It also features a stark white and simplistic layout, where the focus is on the results.

      Similar to other search services, Yahoo caches content around the Web. This makes it viewable in a limited capacity, even when the site is down or no longer exists.

      Yahoo has integrated its search engine into dozens of various Yahoo products and services. Users are also able to integrate it into their Web sites.
