Google Instant ‘vs’ Yahoo Handwritten Search

by Tug Agency | 10.09.2010
Loads of people find Google Instant fun and amusing…. I find it really annoying. Anyways if you do find it fun  have a look at Yahoo’s new handwritten search (it only works in Taiwan and Yahoo Hong Kong)

Searchers can handwrite their search queries and Yahoo will try to match the handwriting to letters, and then show suggested searches.

For more info on how it works and screenshoots read the Yahoo blog post.

You’ll need the latest version of Adobe’s Flash Player for this writing panel to work. Yahoo says the technology supports Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, English, and numbers.

Looks pretty awesome to me! Yahoo 1 – Google 0
