Microsoft backs away from comments about MSN Search

Last week we heard Neil Holloway, a senior executive from Microsoft, boasting that MSN Search will be twice as good as Google within six months time but apparently the company is backing away from the senior executive's comments.
"When you talk about basic Web relevancy, our customers report that we've made some great progress over the past year, and I know that our research and engineering pipeline is overflowing with intriguing ideas that we will test and release as they're ready," writes Ken Moss, the general manager of Web Search, on the company's internal search blog.

"We won't try to predict the progress of our competitors and so we won't forecast when we might take the lead, but this is a long-term game and we are committed to helping drive the next wave of innovation in search for our customers."
