Microsoft tests new search engine

Microsoft is internally testing a new search engine, or rather, one that will replace Live Search. Using the code name, the service is the company’s latest bet to dethrone Google and Yahoo in the online search market.

For the time being, the platform is only available to company employees and therefore does not allow the general public to visit.

In an internal note, which in the meantime ended up reaching the media, Microsoft’s senior vice president of R&D, Satya Nadella explains that this tool aims to solve some of the most common problems of current search engines, one of which is the impossibility of organize and simplify search results.

“We believe that we can provide a better and more useful search experience”, emphasizes Satya Nadella in the document, advances Reuters.

In the meantime, several images of Kumo have appeared on the Internet, including the one we present here.
