Thread Title:
MSN's Stealthy Shopping Search Engine
Thread Description:

I've no idea why this was so stealthily done, but MSN have launched a Beta (heh..) Shopping Search Engine that's quite reminicent of Google's Froogle.

This is quite a bit different to the existing shopping search and it's unclear as to what, other than the layout, and design, has changed. In the MSN blog where it's referenced, Andrew Mas says it's new. Is it though?

You can see some nice screenshots at Organized Shopping

re: new features? really?

Yes, they are moving towards the deep end of the pool, but things like product attribute databases and user reviews/ratings will take time.

Also, I think the beta looks more like a PriceGrabber than a Froogle.

...but i'll save that train of thought for an upcoming rant.
