Yahoo and Adobe to partner on search

Posted on Monday, October 25 2004 @ 18:55 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Yahoo and Adobe have formed a partnership to attempt to keep pace with Google and Microsoft in the search arena.

Under the deal, Adobe is adding a toolbar to its Acrobat software that will link to various Yahoo online resources including its search engine, its pop-up blocker and its anti-spyware software. The toolbar will also link to a Web-based service called Create Adobe PDF Online, which aims to help consumers and small businesses to create PDF files.

In the long term, Adobe also plans to add extra functionality to this toolbar, including a tool that will convert Web pages from HTML into the PDF format. Adobe says this feature will allow HTML content to be "taken offline for viewing, sharing and archiving."
