Microsoft are experimenting search result using AJAX, but they're not using paging at all. Its another concept anyway more "blog oriented" than search engine.


I am very curious what Microsoft is doing in this area.

I find paging very limiting way to navigate through search results. In truth, I think using a plain table for search engines results is only mildly better than a paging approach. The LiveGrid will soon improve in this area by having behaviors that support sorting and filtering.

However, I am very hopeful that search engines will use AJAX to create a more fluid and natural navigation mechanism that goes beyond a table or grid to help us locate information we really care about.
