I’ve been interested in the developments in web searches over recent months, with several new search engines being developed which make greater use of ‘tag clouds’ etc. This afternoon Greg iChatted me a link to DeeperWeb, a new search engine extension with innovative search boosting technologies. DeeperWeb is powered by Google, and employs Tag-Cloud techniques to help users navigate through search results more efficiently and Topic-Mapping Technologies for quick access to answers, news, videos, blogs, Wikipedia and more.
I found it very easy to download the plugin for my Firefox browser, and can now enjoy the benefits of the DeeperWeb search functionality as I search from my brower search bar.
There’s also a useful tutorial page that provides more detail of how each of the search features can be used.
