Yahoo! released a new set of features for its Search Assist service. The most innovative is the inclusion of content and information right inside Search Assist dropdown box. When you do a search for a company’s stock symbol, sports, travel, and movies, Yahoo’ll show real-time search results and couple of related links before you execute the search. Search Assist can also help users reach other Yahoo properties quickly. For certain queries, Yahoo’ll show quick links to Yahoo News or Yahoo Images. For other queries, Yahoo’ll show deep links to other Yahoo properties, like Flickr or Yahoo Mail. Type “mail” while you’re viewing Yahoo Sports, for example, and you’ll get quick links to send an email, visit your in box, or create a new email address.
