Live search is an online web search engine available at . It is a service which is in direct competition with other big search and worldwide well known engines such as Google(created in 1998), Yahoo(created in 1994) and Baidu(created in 2000).
Microsoft Live Search is the fourth most used search engine in the world after Google, Yahoo and Baidu.
