Vivisimo, known for its clustering technology that automatically categorizes web search results on the fly, has launched Clusty, a new meta search engine with some novel and exciting features that are well worth a look. In addition to searching a number of web search engines, you can also use Clusty to search news, blogs, yellow pages listings, "gossip" sources and much more.
Today's SearchDay article, Reducing Information Overkill, covers Clusty's cool new features in depth.
Why the awkward name? Apart from being a play on the company's clustering technology, the domain name and its variations (.com, .net, etc) were available for a mere $9, according to Vivisimo CEO Raul Valdes-Perez. This is clearly a company not in any danger of flaming out due to extravagant excesses we saw during the heyday of the Dotcom craze.
