As much as you don't like comparisons Fred, they are important because Qihoo is Baidu's closest competitor. So we're comparing apples to apples.... A couple of people in the past on the board had said this competition might be a zero sum game, however each company is trying to maximize its search market share.
Brit ..Please explain... r u telling me something new? In my opinion, the market is suggesting (perhaps rightfully so) that Qihu's search continues to grow exponentially thus cutting Baidu's share. I question as did Citron some of Qihu's reporting. As I said b4 I think Li is a straight arrow. I do have questions howver about Qihu. At this point I believe the downside is significant for Qihu but minor for Baidu. (circa 10%). As I said b4 GL...time will tell..
