Let the web help. Just when you thought there was nothing new in search, along comes a new idea. Soovle is a cross between a multi search engine and a visual search engine. If you imagine the concept of a clock, with search engine results available at different times on the clock, you input your search in the middle, get keyword results on the 'hours' and you can then skim the results around so that you can see what's available at 12 o'clock.
If that sounds vague, let me explain better with an image:
So we have our query - eBooks - in the input panel, and results from Bing, YouTube, Answers.com, Wikipedia, Google, Amazon and Yahoo around the edge. Simply click on the icon under the search bar to see the results move to the top of the screen. Click on the results that you like the best to be taken to that specific search engine. As an aside, the method of moving around the screen does look quite snazzy! You can add in more search engines; the default is 7, but you can go up to 11 or 15 which you can choose from pre-assigned options. I was disappointed not to see DuckDuckGo or Blekko available however, and there were several US based tools (such as a Walmart engine) which would never be of any interest to me. It was sometimes slow - Wikipedia particularly, so be patient, or concentrate on taking a look at the results that come up at once - the others should be along shortly.
It's a very nice tool. It's fun to play with, gives a good variety of results and it's a different approach. Well worth exporing.
