People say that Google turned ten this weekend. So did Yandex. I wonder what people will tell about Quintura (which recently turned three) in seven years from now.
Kyle Monson, editor of PCMag.com (PC Magazine) has included Quintura in the list of 10 search services that find ways to improve on the Google search experience in his story “Search Without Google: Part II“.
Here is why PCMag.com featured Quintura among its favorite alternative search technologies:
“A visual search method rather than a textual one, Quintura uses an evolving tag cloud to let you drill down to the specific topic you’re searching for…”
I found out Quintura being the only search engine of non-U.S. origin in the list of alternative search engines in the article. The list consists (in alphabetical order) of Ask Kids, BlueOrganizer, Ixquick, Powerset, Quintura, Searchme, Silobreaker, Twing, Twitter Search, and Viewzi.
