Bored by today’s search engines? Try Tafiti!

Take a minute and think about how the interface of search engines has evolved over the years. Well, you probably just need 5 seconds since nothing really changed. You have a text box to type in and that’s it. Tafiti will change that. Tafiti is a Beta product that Microsoft released recently and from the FAQ is to read:

Tafiti, which means "do research" in Swahili, is an experimental search front-end from Microsoft, designed to help people use the Web for research projects that span multiple search queries and sessions by helping visualize, store, and share research results.

You can save the different search results for later in the left menu and filter within the result. Right now they have applied a Halo 3 skin to the interface since everyone seems to be obsessed with that game J

  • It is a beautiful UI.  I still feel like it takes time to 'learn' to use.  Less intuitive then other search engines.  What do you think are the best reason to change to make it my primary engine?

  • I agree with you that it will take some time to get use to this but I like it. Normally I only use the search field in IE7 so I never browse to a web page to do my search but I will try to use Tafiti to see if it will change the way I search.
