Seeking a way to stand out in a search-engine competition that includes Microsoft and Google, Yahoo began bucket-testing a new search feature, Search Pad, that allows users to manage the information they gather while researching online. Yahoo hopes that the feature, which allows URLs and text to be collected and managed via a "pad" that opens in a separate business window, will attract users who might otherwise use Google or Microsoft for deeper research. eWEEK has broken down some of the most distinctive aspects of Search Pad.
