Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
I found out about a new search engine the other day (can’t remember where… sorry). Like all good products, in fact like pretty much every Google app, it’s currently in beta but it’s showing some early promise bringing some cool new features to the world of search.
The most obvious improvements are the categories and the screenshots. When you make a search it categorises the results so a search for ‘Games’ gets split into various categories such as arcade, puzzles, casino, previews, Xbox Gamecube, and a number of others. When you search you also get screenshot previews of each page in the results which means, if you’re looking for a site you’ve been too, you can find it very easily.
Anyway I’m suitably impressed, and will be using it quite a bit in the coming weeks to see how it holds up. A worthy competitor for Google at last?
