I think Google has gone far too commercial most of the searches that I have done always seems to drag up the same results, same websites " the so called popular sites " unless you go to pages further on? ......................
# with the blinkx format the search details are also kept, with info on each result appearing in a seperate pop out box, when you go across with cursor........quite usefull if you want to go back and check other results of search later on.
Hmmm,beginning to feel like I'm pushing the virtues of this product to much!........oh well!
and like all infants it's learning how to deal with the world. The same thing was true of Google when it started, and look at it now.
I've been trying blinkx for a week or so, and I agree that it leaves much to be desired. That's the purpose of beta software however, and the developers need the input from users if they are to refine the process. I hope they succeed, their concept is innovative, and if they can make this fly it will certainly get my vote. I do great deal of online research, and any tool that improves the experience is going to be a winner with me.
