Microsoft is working to further expand its line of Internet products, this time with a new web search engine. Last week the company revealed its partnership with Inktomi to develop the engine, which will be used on Microsoft's many web sites, including The Microsoft Network. The project, code-named Yukon, will be launched early next year. Inktomi is providing the search technology, and Microsoft is providing the front-end, and integration with its online properties. Inktomi already forms the engine for the HotBot search service at www.hotbot.com. See also www.microsoft.com and www.inktomi.com.
