Friday, April 8, 2005
Yahoo Search engine will supply hardware and other resources to the Wikimedia Foundation Inc. to support that nonprofit organization's free Wikipedia online encyclopedia. Yahoo Search also will feature abstracts of Wikipedia content at the top of relevant search results in the form of shortcuts, which are either factual information or links to factual information. Yahoo's shortcuts are intended to give the answers right on the search results page, so users don't have to browse away to other websites for the desired information.
