What started out as a high school project has now turned into ResultR.com, a search engine that provides results from a variety of sources (or your favorites) with just one search. It reminds me of DogPile but with a different twist. Results are pulled from a variety of sources and topics – they are:
- News: Google news, MSN news, Yahoo news, Newsvine, Topix, Findory
- Blogs: Technorati, Icerocket, Google blogsearch, Bloglines, Sphere, BlogPulse
- Social info: Digg, Delicious, Reddit, Simpy, Furl
- Jobs: Hotjobs, Monsterboard, Indeed, SimplyHired, CareerBuilder
- Media: YouTube, flickr, Google video, Yahoo Images
- Reference: Wikipedia, MSN search, Yahoo search, Encarta, Findarticles
- Local: Weather, Traffic, Restaurants and Events by zipcode
- Shopping: Amazon.com, eBay, Oodle, MSN shopping
The purose and the whole idea behind the project was to provide relevant information quicker. You can even create a personalized search by choosing the search engines you’d like to choose from! This eliminates the tedious task of going from search engine to search engine to compare and look for different results. One of the nice features of ResultR is the ability to search blogs – this is certainly something that not all engines have.
The user interface is very simple with a simple layout. If simple and plain is what you’re looking for in a browser, ResultR will do the trick! They also have Firefox plugins available for every search. Another great feature is that they label and group the results by the source that it came from.
