Thursday, March 30, 2006 Enters Search Fray

New player's spin on search adds category links as a secondary set of search results. Theoretically this would provide a set of sub- and related genres.

But even for a beta, the suggested links are curious indeed. For example, searching on "auto news," generated a link to the Golden State Warriors basketball team, while "classical music" prompted "outdoor living."

What would be useful would be a combined search and browse mashup that includes keyword searching, blog searches, digg user ratings and the directory.

If I want to find out about the latest immigration controversy, I'd like to see the highest rated stories on the subject at the moment, the best websites that cover the subject, as well as resources that discuss the subject in length. A Firefox plug-in to toggle between all the views would be in a word, delicious.
