Yahoo! Search has a new feature to more easily pinpoint details within Wikipedia-created  Web pages that show up in Yahoo search results.

Wikipedia entries returned by Yahoo search now contain a feature called quick links, which when clicked upon jump to a specific portion of the Wikipedia entry. For example, a Yahoo search for "soda" and "Wikipedia" offered up opportunities to steer the Web browser directly to the sections on international variations, North American and Australia.

Someone using the terms "coffee" and "Wikipedia" on Google Inc.'s search engine is left with a multiple page entry to slog through for the detail being hunted.
