Pending regulatory approval, the number two and three search engines will combine their forces for an alliance that will tackle Google on its home turf of web search.
The deal will see Microsoft technology will now power the internet searches and ads on Yahoo site, the partnership will also allow Microsoft to introduce its search engine Bing to a wider audience.
