ExactSeek has released a beta of their new search engine. The company says that it has set up a public testing phase so end users can test the system to provide their feedback. The index contains over 100,000,000 documents and ExactSeek claims to be indexing content from trusted sources to minimize index spam.
Mel Strocen, CEO of ExactSeek said, “This beta release is a culmination of over 12 months of work. It took a heavy investment of time, knowledge, and money to make it possible. Like any beta software it’s certainly not perfect. However, this is why we decided to open it up to the public. We want to gauge reaction and gather suggestions on what we need to do better. Our goal is to fulfill the needs of search users. Their feedback will play a pivotal role in our new technology’s development.”
There are some additional features for personalization, news search, weblog search, image search, and a directory. Advanced search features include duplicate results filtering, the ability to narrow your search query, and a cached version of the document that was indexed.
We’ll give a test-drive and let you know what we think.
