Yahoo has beefed up its personal search with a number of new features and tools, expanding the capabilities of the My Yahoo personal search features that the company launched last October.
“We feel that this is another step for us for personal search, and will really resonate with our users,” said Tim Mayer, director of product management for Yahoo Search.
Most notably, the new My Web service now allows you to save a cached copy of a page in addition to saving just a link to the page.
Cached pages are saved to your personal “My Web,” and you can perform full-text searches over these pages. Previously, Yahoo only saved a link and an optional annotation to a page, making it difficult in some cases to find content where underlying pages had changed.
