By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft is planning to unveil new internet search engine next week, to catch up with the search engines leaders Google and Yahoo, reported the Wall Street Journal.

The new search engine is expected to better organise search results for consumers to minimise the amount of time spent on clicking around web pages looking for information.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the companies have been discussing the possibility of Microsoft using Yahoo’s search engine and working together on advertising. It reported that Microsoft is expected to show off the search engine at Carlsbad-based technology conference.

The Wall Street Journal reported that, the Microsoft search engine, code-named Kumo, has been undergoing testing by the company employees. It said that the search engine will club results of a search into smaller groups, cutting down on the time needed for web searches.

Research firm ComScore said that 64.2% of the searches conducted by the Americans last month were at Google sites, up from 63.7% in March. Yahoo’s share slipped slightly to 20.4% while Microsoft was down to 8.2%.
