Live Search From Microsoft

Microsoft is set to launch it's Live Search from beta.

Notable features of Windows Live Search:

Windows Live Search lets us augment our search-engine investments with a customizable user experience. More than just an engine with a single search box, Live Search helps users personalize their search and more quickly find what is important to them.
The Live Search interface is designed to display a better visual blend of paid and organic results. For example, you'll find complementary fonts, less contrast around ads, and justification of ads with organic results.
Best of all, with an updated search interface, Live Search is designed to attract and retain more searchers – to give you access to what you want – more traffic.
