Internet & Networking "Microsoft has released a new showcase of its Silverlight web development frameworks, a graphical search engine called Tafiti. Tafiti, which means 'do research' in Swahili, is an experimental frontend to Microsoft's Live Search engine. It presents search options in three panes on the screen: the left pane is for entering search queries and switching between image, RSS, Web, and News, the middle pane contains the search results, and the right pane is used to 'dock' results using drag-and-drop for looking at later."

People have been producing web sites like that, with Flash, for years, and years, and years, and years, and years. There's nothing new going on here at all. I can't believe anyone thinks this sort of thing is new, but you know, emperor's new clothes and all that.

It's just too much, and there is a reason why everyone rebelled against Flash-like design in web sites in favour of raw HTML/JavaScript simplicity.
