New York — Internet searchers had celebrities on the mind this year: Famous names made up eight of the top 10 searches on Yahoo in 2015.
The Internet company said that the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, was the year's most searched term. Brown died at age 22 in July, about six months after she was found unresponsive in a bathtub.
Yahoo released its list on Wednesday ahead of those of its search engine rivals Google and Microsoft's Bing.
The second most searched term on Yahoo was iPhone, the company said, likely because Apple released a new version of the smartphone in September. It sold 13 million of them in the first three days of its release.
Caitlyn Jenner, who publicly transitioned to a woman this year, was third on the list. She was followed by daughter Kendall Jenner.
Everybody has challenges in dealing with life. I'm so happy after such a long struggle and finally living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. It feels so good. Can't wait for you to get to know her/me.A photo posted by Caitlyn Jenner (@caitlynjenner) on Jun 1, 2015 at 10:34am PDT
