MSN is currently third in terms of number of Search requests processed. Microsoft is never happy being just third. Look back at the history of Microsoft, Can you still remember when Netscape was the #1 Browser and Internet Explorer was a young upstart? Can you remember when Word Perfect was the #1 Word Processor and Office Just a Dream?
