Livesearch on AlltheWeb - Search that kicks ass

OK, let's make three things clear about Livesearch on AllTheWeb:
  1. I worked on this project (as a late addition to a team of kickass designers, researchers, prototypers, front-end developers, back-end engineers, editors, PMs, QA and marketers - it needs to be said, because not only was the product good, the team and process were excellent.)
  2. Yes, it is a Yahoo! Search product.
  3. It is the freakin' coolest, smartest, easiest search ever but you won't know it until you use it.
Try it. You won't regret it. It's search where you don't even have to hit your Enter key to get results.

In fact, you probably won't even have to finish entering your query before you get the result you were looking for. Play a little game: Think of the answer you want. Then, start typing and count how many keystrokes it takes before you get what you want.

Try it.
