other AltaVista products[edit]

I don't see the tunnel (early VPN) and firewall products mentioned at all... --67.116.30.57 22:14, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

I do not see any mention to their free dial up service, it was like Netzero originally was, you downloaded a program and it put an ad banner at the bottom of your screen and connected you to the internet. Tommyborsh (talk) 18:56, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Corporate structure[edit]

What is the basis for identifying AltaVista as a private company? The article does not seem very clear about the corporate structure. It primarily just describes a series of ownerships by larger companies. The infobox says "Type: Private company". But the identified owners – DEC, Compaq, CMGI, and Yahoo, are all public companies. As best I can tell, the article is about a search engine or search service that had several owners over a substantial period of time, and I think the "private company" should probably be removed since the article is not about a distinct company and the description probably does not apply to most of the search engine's history. —BarrelProof (talk) 18:54, 22 August 2016 (UTC)
