According to report by Compete, Live Search has gained 1% market share as has Google. Yahoo! has lost 2% share to the competitors. The rise in Live Search’s share was expected after Windows Vista was launched with Live Search as the default search engine. As per the report “Overall web search volume on Live Search increased 10% to nearly 590 million queries in February.”
