’s new search engine

I’ve been using Google as my main search engine for information. I turn to Yahoo when I want a nice directory listing of things. I turn to when I want to shop – primarily for books. is now officially launching (this has been known and in the works from some time now) a new search engine with features that would make Google jealous.
The NY Times reports, a start-up owned by Amazon, said in a briefing here on Tuesday that it planned to make the new version of its search service, named, available Tuesday evening. The service will offer users the ability to store and edit bookmarks on an central server computer, keep track of each link clicked on previous visits to a Web page, and even make personal “diary” notes on those pages for viewing on subsequent visits.
