Tafiti: Making eye-candy natural searches
– If you look for “news” the results will appear as if they were in a newspaper.
– General web searches appear with a different clear to read representation.
– Images are displayed iPhoto like
Also, you have what have been called “shelves” where you can group your search with little preview thumnails and maintain them organized, as easy as drag & dropping.
One bad point is it finally leads you to the usual Live search engine in some cases as when you pick an image to see.
As I said, it pretty a first step (it’s in Beta phase right now), but I think it could be a good approach to a more meaningful and powerful search.
Hope Google will do something like this, if they’re not actually working on it, you never know with them. For sure they’ll make it in an AJAX fashion, if they can (which may be true, as true is it would be far more complicated), but they also wouldn’t depend on a plug-in (specially Microsoft, even though Mono is there). Well… just speculations.
Resuming, I see this as a good research software. We’ll see if it leads to something mature.
