Yahoo unveils their own web browser

Yahoo the digital media company has released its own web browser, Axis. The new ‘search browser’ will allow you to search easier and faster by swiping on thumbnails.

The search browser Axis won’t show links pages as results but instead there will be most of the time Web page thumbnails or text boxes with results in a horizontal display. In this case, there will be more chance that you will end up on the web page then before with those links.

Shashi Seth, senior vice presidents of Connections Yahoo! Inc. said in a press release:

“Our search strategy is predicated on two core beliefs—one, that people want answers, not links and two, that consumer-facing search is ripe for innovative disruption. With Axis, we have re-defined and re-architected the search and browse experience from the ground up.”

Axis is integrated into the web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari and offering Axis plugins. There is already an Axis app available for all iOS devices and users can swipe to the next results. For Android and Windows users, it is coming soon for you.

If you want to sign in, you have to use your Yahoo, Facebook or Google account for a reason. You can add your bookmarks in the sections ‘My Favorites’ or ‘Read Later’. Since you are logged in, it will make it easy to pick on one of your bookmarks where you left off on another device. Amazing feature that users can move between platforms and keep their open tabs and histories intact!

Are you curious now? Take a look at Yahoo’s own web browser Axis and let us know your search experience.
