Jukebox-style Search Engine

Postby pennymachines » Sat Aug 05, 2006 10:13 pm

Not really to do with slot machines this one - except I found Jim Hacking's slot machine website using it, and it resembles a jukebox selector.

Called ujiko - it's high-tec Flash interface makes a change from google minimalism and it offers many unique features, but is intuitive to use. It is a visual metasearch engine (ie. collects its results from a bunch of other search engines) and shows thumbnail snapshots of the sites it finds. It then lets you filter them to guide it's searching habits towards your preferences.

It's been around since 2004 but I only just discovered it. I think it deserves to be better known. It works well and it's fun!
