Busted. I was already wondering where would Yahoo! get the funds and time for a new browser but as soon as i read the second post . . .
EDIT: After looking at the first link it seems that it does look like a browser for iOS however in the PC it's just a plug in.
I already saw on the news their in financial troubles,big time.
Far too little and far too late, imho. I think they're in "throw something at the wall and see what sticks" mode. Mail is about all they have left, without it they're all but a dead company.
There's still Yahoo news and Yahoo's stock as well as a few other products.
edit: It's not a browser it's a plugin.
Security flaw found already. It's a big one lol
That didn't take long, lol. But yeah, I know they have several products, but in my own opinion Mail is the one product they can keep successful. They don't suck, it's leadership that is the issue.
Oink, flap, thud?
I have a feeling this is going to be one of those products that doesn't last very long, or doesn't become popular enough.

And here is what Axis is: http://axis.yahoo.com/
Just FYI, this is the attitude everyone had when Chrome came out.

So at what point does it become a joke?
IE9 says Yahoo Axis slows down browser by .07 seconds
Yeah... this is not going to catch on.
Yeah, I mean I will probably lose it if I have to read even more fanboy postings of browser 'statistics'. I mean, having to include Yahoo! as well as the others would drive anyone insane.
Yahoo has the funds, but it might not be so lucrative for them since they would be so late arriving to the seen. It might take years for them to even get a small portion of the market share. On the other hand it didn't take long for Google Chrome to gain popularity so who knows if it would be worth it for them. With all their toolbars being shoved down your throat all the time they wise wells to go ahead with their own browser. I use yahoo mail as my primary mall account so I believe they have valuable services.
chrome is a browser, this is not
Your point being? Both were just as laughable.
I just watched the demo in Yahoo Axis webpage. It seems to offer a new experience in searching, might be "interesting" (useful?) in some scenarios. Anyone tested it?
Ok, I had to test this out for myself...to give it a chance. I must say, it actually works pretty well, and is a pretty cool concept.
I don't get it, it's a plug-in right? Do you download it & run the installer? Does it install to IE or something?
For desktop, it's a plugin for browsers
For iPad and iPhone, it's a full blown browser
