To the fundamentalists who seem to suggest that the new MSN is no good because it doesn't list top ranked Google and Yahoo sites quite as prominently, while that may or may not make the results “objectively” inferior (there are certainly a lot of sorry sites in those directories with high rankings), promoting different results is a very good model for MSN. What incentive would people have to go with MSN if it’s not fundamentally different than Google or Yahoo? Different results will help them build a better base. I personally hope that the big three will be as different as possible. What could be worse than having the net brought to you by three identical filters?
