Yahoo Search Pad Looks Like An Online Researcher’s Dream


Yahoo has announced a new feature in the works called Search Pad, a tool designed to organise online research—like all that work you did researching a new HDTV—through a smart and simple interface. The video walkthrough demonstrates how the service works, and since Search Pad is “currently only in testing and is not visible to all users,” that may be all the closer you can look for now (especially in Oz). Search Pad automatically detects when you start researching a topic and keeps track of the sites you’ve visited. You can add to and edit the items in your Search Pad within your Yahoo search results, and when you’ve finished your research, Search Pad can save the results to your Yahoo account, email them to someone else, or print them off. If the service is available to you (it’s not to us), let’s hear what you think in the comments.


  • I think this is a great idea from Yahoo. I would use this to quickly copy down notes and would be very useful when people ask questions on where to go for different things, one problem is I use Google search which is better for me, if only Google created this first.
