finally .. online research gets juicy



Juice is a new online application that enhances your browsing and research experience by instantly displaying search results for any item you choose (word, image, video, etc.) in your  sidebar. Results can be viewed at the time you call them up or later on.

You could say juice competes with tools like Watson, Blogrovr, and to some extent Powerset, for your attention. Juice however is quick to draw the distinction that it uses so-called semantic search to achieve results. Readers of this blog know that I’ve been on the trail of the elusive semantic search for sometime and have volunteered for countless beta trials, only to be disappointed again and again.

But I am trying juice as we speak and so far it has done a bang-up job of enhancing my browsing with Google search content (text, images, news, videos, and blogs). In other words, so far so good. That is, as long as you want to enhance your search with Google results – so far that’s all it can summon. No other search engines, and no other content. Kind of a one-trick pony for now. Still, I encourage readers to try the application and let me know what they think.

P.S. Looks like the next phase of development will bring the ability to share results. This is a good thing.
