Chris Sherman reported Wednesday that Yahoo's Farechase Adds Features. New features include;

(1) Integration into the main Web search. For example, a search on flights to st. louis puts this Yahoo Shortcut at the top of the results.

(2) They added a social networking element, where you can save fare searches to Yahoo My Web. I conducted a search and saw a "save to my web" link at the top. Attached is an image of how it looks, cropped a bit, click on the image for a full view.

(3) They also integrated satellite imagery of Yahoo Maps beta into FareChash, but I am not sure how that works.

To see the satellite maps: type in "compare las vegas hotels" into Yahoo! Search. Click on one of the price results and you'll be taken to Yahoo! FareChase. From there you'll see the map on the right hand side. On the top left corner of the map there are buttons for you to toggle between street view maps, satellite maps and hybrid maps.
