ABSTRACT
The article discusses the changes in the search industry. The search industry of today bears little resemblance to the early commercial systems in the 1970s. Now, search is being seamlessly incorporated into myriad applications and augmented by value-added features. Any meeting, such as the Search Engine Meeting organized by Infonortics Ltd., focuses on Google Inc. due to its influence on the market. It is not only a Web search engine, but it is also venturing into other information retrieval applications. The integration of searching into different applications is an emerging trend. It represents a major step toward enriching the information experience of Internet users. INSET: The Everett Brenner Prize.
