"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] It appears that Yahoo has beaten Google, at least when it comes to the number of images indexed on their servers. Yahoo leads the way with 1.5 Billion images with Google trailing behind with 1,187,630,000. Yahoo has also installed a new feature called "Also Try" which adds suggestions to your search in order to help you find the images that you need. It looks like the competition is heating up between the two (with MSN no where to be found) but the playing field could even out as time goes on.
Here is what the Yahoo Search Blog had to say about their other new features:
Lastly, in the spirit of "easier" and "faster," you can now also preview image results directly in your web search results.
When you do find that perfect photo, share it with a friend. Click on the Mail to Friend link in the preview page of your favorite Jessica shot.
These sound like some major improvements over the past couple of weeks. Hopefully Google can step it up and take the lead again, but I am glad Yahoo! is around to spur the competition (which benefits net users the most). Selah!
