New Breed Of Search Engines - Wolframalpha
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey,
We all use Google/Bing/Yahoo etc etc to search. It gives you millions of results for any query, out of which more then 90% are of no use. Right?

Here comes a new Search Engine(they don't call it a search engine though as it computes the answer on its own)
http://www.wolframalpha.com
It gives you only one result!! Not only that, it claims that the result it not copied from somewhere but its own original! Thus it claims the right on it too!! Till now software vendors only claimed there software as copyrighted, but with this, not only the search engine but the output is also copyrighted!!

They are still working on it, but some of the results it shows is really awesome, (it won't work for every query, But hey it gives you a very good alternative when you want only one specific answer or you want to compare something!!

I checked http://www.go4expert.com
Here are the results!!

Code:

And if you check the attached below graph, you'll see that the site has grown a lot in terms of its daily visitors. I think almost in an year we have increased around 25000 dailys visitors per day!! Which is really cool!!! Way to go shabbir!! :D

Ok here's another cool comparison i did!

Yes. We should be positive.

Also I guess all this guess work sites are more or less piece of crap.

Mayjune: I love this site and have been watching over it before it was launched. :)
I don't remember from where I got the original link but I'm a fan of Wolfram|Alpha

Shabbir: Even I didn't got your point?

Re: New Breed Of Search Engines - Wolframalpha
 
Yeah me too.
I stumbled upon Alpha on around 20th May. (It was launched on 18th)
And, I just love it since then ...

@ shabbir : Neither did I understand what you wanted to say ?!

I meant sites which rank sites based on some data like Alexa ranks website based on Data collected from people using Alexa toolbar is very far from accurate but that is the best among the worst. All other are just no algo why one site ranks at some rank.
