That's, potentially, going to be a big positive shift for Bing.

Wonder if Google will be issuing press releases to the clueless technology journalists about how Chrome has a built-in knowledge graph for extra smartness. If Bing is prioritised it will definintely push Google's share of the search market down.

Given the negative historical significance of "Axis", as in "Axis powers" (Japan, Germany, Italy) and Allies" or the more recent resort to "axis of evil" by ex-pres GWB, I'd call Yahoo's branding a teeny bit of a social-historical branding gaff . . but, WTH, there's only a few hundred million folks who might find the name a bit . . offputting?

What about "Axis: Bold as Love", Jimi Hendrix's album? It's one of my all time favorites. Maybe Yahoo! can get the Hendrix estate to do some marketing -- do some video magic to show Jimi with a smartphone using the AXIS software while cuts from the album play in the background.

Too cluttered (thumbs down) ..its better if they start making their search results more relevant and query friendly

Jury's out for me. Some nice touches but it gives US - centric results which is not much good for me in the UK - eg football results gives me all american football sites. ebay gives me ebay.com not uk

Pity they left their PGP private key in the software for someone to discover and spoof on. :)

You know, I'm not a huge Yahoo fan, but if this is marketed right, this could actually work.
I don't mean to be jumping the gun, but if this add-in (in the desktop version) provides a decent enough search result, then what is the need for a full-page search engine (for the masses, at least)?
Looks like they've still got to sort these results out a bit, like nickreynolds mentioned, but as a first stab at it, I think they've done rather well!
I'll be really interested to see how this one works out.

Actually I've removed it from my desktop now. Too annoying! I found the little search box that's always there a bit visually intrusive and annoying that when you accidentally mouseover (for instance when going to the taskbar which I do a lot) you get the flyout.
I wanted this to work but it needs developing.

That explains why I have been seeing them in my logs accessing with different mobile devices. However looks like a glorified toolbar.

It's also annoying in that the search box moves around the screen. You click on it and there it goes, somewhere else!
