“If we would have new knowledge, we must get a whole world of new questions.” Susanne K. Langer
Do you remember Ask Jeeves the search site? I never really embraced their search style. I have always preferred sites like Yahoo or Google because of the way they show you their results. Now Ask.com, formerly Ask Jeeves, has updated their site to be more like Google. With a simplified look and long list of extras it does a fair job. When you do a search for something they try to cram every possible bit of information about the subject into one page. This has a sometimes overwhelming feel. However you can alter the pages to fit your preferences. There is also a Zoom feature that allows you to weed results out or widen your search. If you are tired of the big two search engines give ask a try.
