This is pretty slick. It sits in your system tray as a TSR. I like it on the desktop too, so I don't have to have IE open to search and it is not taking away window space on your browser. The "web map" with all the search results is a seperate window that is not part of your browser. That is also nice.

I am getting no work done because I have been playing with this :) and Kartoo does a nice job of displaying keyword relationships between sites which I find valuable as a webmaster.

I think kids would love it too and would not find the graphical SERPs at all hard to understand.

I guess being IE dependant cannot be avoided, but I would love to see a version that uses whatever the default browser is when you click on a listing. If the browser can be changed I didn't find it.

The other thing I would like is a Mac version. Most of my time searching is with a Mac and I think I would use Kartoo much more if it was on my desktop and opened links in my default browser.

Still this thing has a lot going for it.

Just want to add that the english version is a beta version...So your feedback would be interesting.
