What do you think?

This major redesign has 3 main features:

Blekko now exposes multiple search categories to help users navigate to high quality results more efficiently and with less queries
Blekko supports a responsive design that adjusts to tablet and desktop screen sizes
The site has been redesigned with a new aesthetic and navigational approach that we hope users find fun and engaging

Change all they like, it doesn't work for me because I expect search engines to work with javascript turned off.

Shame, because I actually allow it to crawl and have used it on occasion in the past.

I really like the layout. Clean simple colorful. It's cool to click into the sub-meaning of your phrase so easily.

If the search results were on target I'd call it great, but largely off-topic items are shown in my areas. You need the categories just to get to the right subject.

Until they support the rights of content owners and stop scraping & caching our content to their servers, they will remain blocked no matter what they look like.

I like the SERP display, but the SERPs themselves are garbage for my keywords. Spam, spam, spam, spam, spam, scraped sites, spam...

It should at least display a message saying 'turn JavaScript on', as a bare minimum.

Blekko should be renamed Sukko.

Searched for Webmaster Forum and the top results are pinterest, an iTunes app for V7N, a UK webmaster forum I've never heard of, a Google Support Forum, then a twitter directory. The bottom six are populated by WebmasterWorld, searchengineland, a single member profile from SEOMoz, bottoming out with highrankingsforum and searchenginewatch. Not useful.

I did a search on "How to catch stripers" and the top result was a news report about a fishing derby, followed by a cafepress mug, etc. Not useful at all.

Did the striper search on bing and while it's returning garbage sites like eHow, at least those pages answer my question. Google does significantly better, despite also returning non-authoritative pages from eHow.

The above is constructive criticism. Blekko has bigger problems than their interface.

I really want to like blekko, but I just can't seem to find much value in it.
