Google is working on a new search engine, code-named Caffeine. And with all of the positive press Microsoft has been getting for Bing, Google wants to tell you about Caffeine.
What’s it all about?
Google isnâ€™t disclosing exactly what has been altered, but in a nutshell, search results show up faster and in a somewhat different order.
How much faster?
Weâ€™re talking fractions of seconds, but itâ€™s there. In our test search for â€œPC World,â€ for example, the results took 0.15 seconds on the regular Google search, and 0.09 seconds on Caffeine.
Is it ready yet?
Google has set up a Web developer preview of Caffeine that you can test atÂ http://www2.sandbox.google.com/.
