    MSN is now putting out its search results in RSS format. If you look at the source code of any SERPs page in MSN beta ( or normal now that they seem to have taken beta live, at least in the UK ) there's a div with id rss_format which they are currently using CSS to hide.
    If you append "&format=rss" to any query string you will see the feed.

    I guess that this is MS's answer to Google's API, 'cause it will allow them to plug MSN search capabillity into any new application / OS they produce. Very clever of them, and unusually standards compliant ;)

    How is Microsoft going to make money from providing this service. Is this just going to a complementary service to the normal portal? This is much easier to use than Google's API. Perhaps all search engines will start allowing this. This has vast impacts.

    HEY DIGITALPOINT! I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
