Yahoo Axis really shows a lot of improvement for you can experience two things at a time that is you can BROWSE while you SEARCH through its previews in whatever you type and even have predictions of course, that completes anything you may want as you type.

With the rich experience it provides, I think it will be beneficial to those who wants quick access and navigation between the sites they want to visit, even without leaving a certain page.

Compared to Google Chrome, Yahoo Axis may be good enough for those who want browse and search at once and those who wants quick previews, but to think, it will consume much data usage on your internet connections for it acquires a lot of bandwidth to load pages or previews.

It is even only available in the AppStore for now, no for Android, and just plugins in several desktop browsers.

Unfortunately, the Yahoo! Axis was already discontinued middle of this year. The Yahoo Axis is a web browser extension for desktop computers and if you have an iPhone handset or any iOS device it is available as a mobile browser. It was created and designed by Yahoo and was announced on May 23, 2012.

But it was so unlucky that a copy of the private key that was used to sign certified Yahoo browser extensions for the browser Google Chrome was unintentionally leaked. It happened during the initial public release of the Google Chrome extension. And maybe because of this unfortunate incident, Yahoo decided to discontinue Axis and it was announced on June 28, 2013.

The aim of Axis is to replace or substitute the typical search results page in other web browsers using a menu of search results. The menu appears as thumbnails located at the top of the page. The menu will allow users to stay on the present page without navigating away from it.

If you want to try it and install it on your web browser, visit Yahoo! Axis Browser Extension. Remember that it only works on Google Chrome [all versions], Mozilla Firefox [version 7 and later], Microsoft Internet Explorer [version 9 and higher], and Apple Safari [version 5 and later]. If you want to try it as a mobile browser in your iOS device, visit Yahoo! Axis for iOS. It supports iPad and iPhone.
