New Search Engines January 29, 2007

Posted by Vijay in Business, India, Innovation, Internet, Search, Trends.

Check out Guruji. Its a India specific search engine that launched a few months ago. Its still evolving but has come a long way from when it started. However it still hasn’t replaced Google as my search engine of choice.

Microsoft has launched Ms. Dewey based on Live Spaces. Its an interesting interface but totally worthless as a serious search engine. Check it out if you have some time to spare.

For all you developers and coders looking for sample code, the coolest search engine is Krugle. Check it out.

i did try out guruji. only prob [for the time being] is that they have very few pages indexed. i’m sure i’ll double up in no time 🙂

Cottonwood: Thanks for stopping by… yes they still have a loooong way to go. By the way whats your opinion on Ms. Dewey?

Ms. Dewey is too much of a distraction 😉 I lose my desire to search! Great direction of the model though! It certainly looks like Guruji has a place, if they market it right. I can see why people would want to use it.

Murali, another little tidbit of information. The model who is on MS Dewey is Janina Gavankar and is of Indian and Dutch descent.. more information here… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ms._Dewey

I have booked marked krugle, but Ms Dewey seems to still download with a pretty lady in the first page. I didn’t see the skip button either 😦

Dewey is very slow to load initially… no skip button… need to have sound on as well to get the full “effect”
