nmk writes: " has done a complete overhaul of their search engine interface. The new results page is devided into three colums. The left column allows you to narrow or expand your search by providing relevant criteria. The center colum provides traditional search results, while the right columg gives context specific media results (pictures, videos, blogs, news, time, weather). The results column also allows you to see a thumbnail of each page and also save your favorite search results. There are a number of other advanced featuers that become evident when the new engine is used. This seems to be a far more advanced interface than what is provided by Google. Do you think it will be enough to convince a substantial number of people to evaluate Ask as an alternative to Google."
