New version for KartOO.
Targeted personalisation of results

 12:41 pm on Nov 19, 2003 (gmt 0)

Three truly innovative functions:

1.Personalisation of results according to your interests and previous searches
2.An innovative and intuitive information management system: the Kapitaliser, for which KartOO SA has lodged a patent application.
3.A high performance and easy to use monitoring system

The Kapitaliser: when activated, this system memorises the search words, the sites visited and the requests which were successful. This personalises the results for subsequent searches according to the profile of the user’s interests.

The user has permanent access to this history, which enables him or her to easily find the sites found by previous searches.

This revolutionary function will above all enable the user to capitalise on the information he considers interesting by simply “adding / removing” them from an integrated favourites manager (file tree where each branch corresponds to a thematic favourites map). This capitalisation is accompanied by the automatic creation of a description of the site to which the user can add comments and notes. The favourites maps and their associated description files can be sent easily by mail (information sharing).

Thanks for letting us know about your the upgrade. Is there an official press release, on a wire service, or something we could link to?

Sounds awesome, am about to go check it out now!

unbiased he aint!

Hmmm. You couldn't tell by his nick?

Always great stuff, looking good.

If they keep improving and evolving with the user in mind, you may be begging him to show up in various threads ALA Googleguy. :)

Very good, i've always liked the graphical interface since kartoo came out, but this is pretty cool.


 12:42 am on Nov 20, 2003 (gmt 0)

looks great, very interesting interface - but why soo many co.uk domains? For the couple of phrases I searched thats all I got? I think maybe I'm just missing some setting?

Jeremy. Official press release will be next monday...Prnewswire.


 11:03 am on Nov 20, 2003 (gmt 0)

The interface is gorgeous but frankly I dont see anything in the quality of the search results that would make me want to use it instead of google.


 12:02 pm on Nov 20, 2003 (gmt 0)

Nobody is telling you to use it instead of google...You should also enjoy alternatives.


 1:40 pm on Nov 20, 2003 (gmt 0)

Very Nice!

kartoo4u, you say "The Kapitaliser: when activated, this system memorises the search words, the sites visited and the requests which were successful."

Our of curiousity sake, how are you defining the word "successful"? If you are not at liberty to explain, I understand.


 12:28 am on Nov 21, 2003 (gmt 0)

This is cool stuff. Just seems like people wouldn't use this UI too frequently - maybe in 2007. Always good to see someone pushing the envelope though.

And I agree about encouraging people to use alternatives. Whatever happened to rooting for the underdogs? It's not 2001 anymore - there are a couple of other engines that are just as good as Google now. Also, everyone acts like Google is the Apple of search, but really they're the Microsoft of search. They almost have a monopoly. We need to encourage the Apples of the world to make things interesting!

While the interface is awesome, I am underwhelmed by the search results and the map links. Maybe the keywords I tried were'nt suitable.
kartoo4u, I'm not trying to put you down...only giving you my opinion...feedback

This is the first GUI of a search engine I've ever seen in my life! And that too, its fast! cool animations. Well done.

Just a question: How many employees does Kartoo have?



 1:43 pm on Nov 24, 2003 (gmt 0)

Enough to make good job ;-)


 8:21 pm on Nov 26, 2003 (gmt 0)

Whew! I was prepared to hate Kartoo for the animations and "whiz bang" attitude, but then I saw the results.

My site was at #1!

Actually, I also found a cool site that I wasn't even aware of in my category. So thumbs up.
