The lost art of searching the web

by Ritwik on August 12, 2009

Why do I call searching a lost art ? Simply because I hardly hear anyone mention search anymore; everybody seems to be googling for information.

Michael Kordahi has developed an interesting tool called Blind Search

With Blind Search, a user enters a search query and sees three different set of search results, from Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft Bing – the catch is that the user is not shown which search engine is associated with a given set of results.

The idea is that a search engine’s effectiveness should be evaluated independent of reputation.

Use it – the results may be revealing for those who rely exclusively on Google for their search needs.
