||Yes, I have considered these shortcomings.
This was my first argument I used when disagreeing with my friend- where would the
browser go to: skilful.com, skilful.net, skilful.co.uk etc? And as you rightly cite,
how would it distinguish between differently spelt words with the same pronunciation?|
leat the second concern here would not be a problem with Realnames' Keywords, since
they are typed. But as to which tld would get the keyword, we have more ip issues.
And would someone with a tld have more claim over it than someone who did not have
a matching tld, but had a site on the subject. Add TMs into the equation and you
have an even greater mess than WIPO have caused already.
Personally I think those
keywords are flawed. They cannot compare with search engines. It's just another scam
that Microsoft/ browser creators want to cash in on. But I don't think it will go
far, as the end result to the user is inferior to existing methods they are happy
with like Google.
I do wonder what the next evolutionary shift after domains in
ters of indexing worldwide info will be. Who knows, maybe VR will catch up and you'll
ask a virtual person/guide a question and (s)he'll give you a selection of alternatives...
