Ixquick's new beta with topic clustering mfagan
Ixquick [ ixquick.com]'s front page has a link to 'try our beta version'. The beta has topic (and subtopic) clustering.
Now that is a pretty cool feature. It's rather quick too - considering the amount of data they are pulling.
Nice find, thanks.
Its only appearing on the english version not the English UK so don't forget to click on that one if it puts you there by default to get to the beta link. Wow the clustering really is a good effort seems to make a whole lot more sense than some of the attempts I've seen. robjones
Thats a good find mfagan, their clustering feature is cool and a lot better to look at than vivisimo's set up. The only thing that would stop me from using ixquick more now is that the search results links open in a new window. cornwall
Must be too much interest, I keep getting unobtainable for ixquick :( vitaplease
Try de-activating Teoma and it does not work.
(I first tried de-activating Open Directory because that would be one of the main sources I would use in clustering).
In fact, it is a summary of Teoma's "Refine" after pressing "show all refinements" as far as I can check.
I'm not so sure, vitaplease. I tried a number of queries on both ixquick and teoma, some with the teoma option on ixquick off and some with it on. Either way, I see very different clusters. vitaplease
Maybe I'm searching in the wrong ixquick, but if I opt-out of Ask Jeeves/Teoma in Ixquick, I get no clustering.
Try a typical clustering check search such as "Jaguar".
In Teoma click on "Show All Refinements".
The results seem the same (albeit limited in number).
Another good check is "Ford", Vivisimo is better (click on more) in that it also presents Harrison Ford, the Ford Foundation etc.
