Helioid.com – Search By Category
While nobody in his right mind would think this new search engine would pose a threat to giants such as Google or Bing, there’s no denying it has come into the fold with some new ideas. And that’s always something worthy of a round of applause, and more than its fair share of respect.
In a nutshell, Helioid enables people to carry out categorized searches. By furnishing the terms that apply, users are getting a thorough list of concepts that go with them. This list is presented on the left-hand side of the screen, and each item has a color associated to it. A mere click lets users display the results that go with such a concept only.
For example, if you look up “Apple” right now you’re getting a list made up of “Stock Quote”, “Products”, “News”, “iPhone”, “iTunes”, “iPad”… and just by clicking on the one you’re more interested in, you’ll have all the information that goes with it instantly displayed.
Revolutionary? Not really. Practical? Quite a bit. And that’s more than you can say about many of these generic search tools that are habitually released at the speed of light.
