Faster And Better Results Than Google Or Yahoo? Try GuideBeam

The GuideBeam is a new meta-search engine designed specifically to help the user formulate a precise description of their information need. It is particularly suited for: a) non-technical users (who typically issue imprecise queries), b) searching of the type "I don't know what I want, but I'll know when I find it". GuiDeam reduces information overload as it happens in traditional major search engines by presenting a structured summary of the search result (a "hyperindex"), through which the user can browse in order to clarify his or her information needs. Browsing through the "hyperindex" relieves the user of much of the confusing detail encountered when browsing the actual retrieved documents.
