Take notes on your Search Pad

You’re doing research online – writing a paper on global warming, buying a new washing machine, planning a trip to Thailand, or trying to understand a health condition. You visit a few related websites when suddenly your search engine asks you if you’d like to start taking notes.

Introducing Search Pad, a new feature we’re testing on Yahoo! Search that helps you keep track of websites and take notes whenever you do research online. It intelligently understands when you’re in research mode and, if you choose, collects information about the sites you visit. You can create research documents with saved websites, edit and reorder your personal notes, and share them with friends. No more handwritten scrawls, Post-Its or scattered documents. And you can access them from wherever you are.

It’ll be a few months before we officially launch Search Pad. In the meantime, have a look at this screencast to get a sense of how it works. And head over to Yahoo! Search Blog for more details.

We’re excited to bring you search innovations like these, designed to help you get stuff done – faster and easier.
