    searchme in beta version, what do you think?
    Hello people,

    Just asking to know if somebody has tried the beta version of searchme.

    I have received my invitation today, and it looks pretty nice. It organizes the search results like the last generation of ipods does with the mp3s.

    Any commentaries about it?

    Thank you very much.

    Regards,

    p.s. there are a few of invitations left if you want to give it a try.

    WOW. Highly recommended. Kind of like the Spacetime browser, but runs in Mozilla. Thanks for the find, Felipe.

    My first impression is not good.
    To give only ONE result for each search is bad, even if you can select a directory.
    It's like using "I'm Feeling Lucky" with Google but with a picture of the site.

    Hello again Felipe,

    Interesting find!

    Did find something strange though - if you search for '2008 election' the second result is a site listing poll results, but the page title in the search result is wrong - it displays -
    2008 ElectionLocal Girls Live on Cams

    That has to be a bug!

    Zeus,

    It seems like some keywords only return 1 result - have to assume because it's still beta. But still, I am only finding a max of maybe 15 results

    They have a special navigation with a slide bar to navigate from left to right. I didn't see it first.

    I checked '2008 election' I was expecting to see the winner. Just kidding.
    Yes, they have much more results.
    Fancy interface with good pictures.

    the results are shown like live msn search engine does (as they appear), and not organized by page results, maybe that's the reason you see less results, may be if you give more time to the site to load more results.

    But as some of you said, the SE is still in beta version and the algorithm works not so fine yet

    I should have said "Highly recommended - to play around with." A few search queries didn't turn out as I had expected. Just hit the "flag inappropriate content" and hopefully it will clean them out. Overall, an interesting concept and glad to see it able to be inside an existing browser instead of having to d/l a new browser too. Guess we will have to stand by and see how it evolves.

    It takes time for the different sites to load in the background.
    I'm getting used to it.
    You have also a different view (like Google) if you click just under the slider.
    My second impression is much, much better.

    It's cool to play around with. I don't know how practical it is but I'm always open to trying new things. I hope they do well.

    They did, too. But I can see the result.
    My sites are there for each of my searches.

    Conceptually, it's very cool.

    On the other hand, the perceived value of google is its simplicity. Will be interesting to see who uses this new one when it's out of beta.
