Searching? Don't search for it, Find it!

I was tinkering on the Net a while ago when I stumbled upon this new search engine that promises to give us a whole new way of searching. It’s called Find.com. Yeah, find. What’s a better name for a search engine than this, so off I go to find out what’s cool about it.

Fresh, clean layout

For starters, the site offers a fresh, clean look. Fonts and colors are friendly to the eyes. The search box is bigger to accommodate larger font size for typing in search terms and the results are also displayed in larger fonts. This comes in handy for people like me whose eyes are no longer in their tip-top condition. Search results open in their own window. It’s no big deal, really, but I like it more than right-clicking to open the search result site in another window, just like what I always do with Google or Yahoo.

Ease of use

With practically nothing on its home page but the search box and a directory of content on many subjects, Find.com is much easier to navigate. Its no-frills design appeals to me. Interestingly, its name is also simple and easy to remember.

Now, what do you need to do when you’re looking for something? Go and find it. They hit the nail right on the head on this one. :)

Relevant results

Find.com provides relevant results compared to Google, Yahoo, and any other search engines. Any average Joe who is not well-versed with sophisticated search syntax will find it easier to find the information he needs here.

How does it compare to Google? Will it be a better alternative? Wanna see for yourself? Your Find Engine. And don’t forget to come back here and tell me what’s so cool and not-so-cool about it.
