A new search engine!

The above pic says it all about the spirit of quitura. And it has some ajaxed stuff within it which looks nice enough. Though how useful it is, will be known later only.

Quintura is a visual search engine based on the Yahoo! Search engine.

A search returns both a list of search results and a tag cloud. The tag cloud contains the original search terms surrounded by related tags. The closer to the search terms, the larger the keyword suggestions (both in terms of font size and boldness), the more relevant they are deemed. Holding the mouse over a term will display a new set of results in the bottom window and will also show another keyword cloud overlaying the original.

Theres also Quintura Kids which is a kids’ visual find engine based on Yahoo! Kids child-safe results. The unique visual search interface allows kids to quickly develop and refine their search by clicking or just mousing over tags in a cloud of related words and phrases.
