Microsoft goes real time search with IE8

It is now quite clear that 2009 is the year of the 'real time search'. With Twitter expanding daily, twittersearch becoming a more and more discussed subject and smaller real time search engines popping up left and right the bigger search engines simply can't stay behind. Google's answer was Goole Wave, while Microsoft launched a new search engine, Bing.

But Microsoft doesn't seem to be wanting to bet on just the one horse. Shortly after announcing Bing they announced a new initiative. Users of Internet Explorer 8 can now more easy use real time search. Internet Explorer 8 is expanded with search and "webslices" from OneRiot. A separate real-time add-ons package will also be added to IE8.

OneRoit is a real-time social search engine. It looks at "retweets" and social media shares, as well as the overall authority of the sharer.

Internet Explorer 8 users can choose three real-time add-ons packages. In those packages are real-time search results, top shared items of the day and top videos featured. A OneRiot search bar will be added in the top right of the browser. Users can (off course) choose OneRiot as their default search engine.

The fact that this real time search engine is integrated in one of the worlds most used browsers is off course a big advantage for OneRiot compared to other real time search engines. Maybe this is a sign for others like Twingly or Topsy to strike a deal with Firefox?
