1. 10 Blue Links Be Gone: Yahoo Axis Offers Browser & Visual Search Experience (by Greg Sterling, Search Engine Land)
Axis is available for all three screens: PC (as a browser plug-in), the iPad and the iPhone (as apps). Android is coming.
Axis is a fully functional browser that syncs content across all screens if users are signed in. Like other browsers Axis features tabs and book marks and can render any web page.
On the PC it functions more as a “companion” search bar at the bottom of the page on each of the major browsers: IE, Chrome and Firefox.
