I just came here to post the very same thing!!! Not cool Panic, I found it over at the PCLOS forums just 5 minutes ago. Where do you get your info??
Back to the topic though, I’m very fond of it’s interface and minimalistic style. It even contains similar search results.
Also, is google getting a little behind the times? It seems like they’re focusing more on money making than improving search now. Cuil and at least one other search engine features categories now and has a very different interface than what the standard is.
Where’s the innovation with google?
More and more search engines are coming up with similar if not exact results and do it in a better way I think.
You can have a google based search and categorization - check out www.killerinfo.com or www.klusty.com. Both of these are metasearches, which include google as one of their contributors. They use the Vivisimop clustering engine to aggregate and refine their results (and get rid of the ads ;))
