Review: EXALEAD, an alternative to Google [English]

Veröffentlicht am 20. Februar 2007 in Allgemein, Internet | 1 Kommentar

This article gives a review on the searchengine EXALEAD.

Google users only can dream of some functions which Exalead offers to its users.

If you are interested in Exalead’s background or history, read Wikipedia’s article about Exalead.

Exalead’s index size is 8 billion pages (October 2006)

 

Websearch

The websearch is still simpel and well arranged. If your keyword is very global, you also have got the chance to refine your search.

Type “Google” into the searchbox and Exalead offers you some detailed keywords

  • Sergey Brin
  • Google products
  • Google sitemaps
  • Google Account
  • Google wants

Multimedia allows you to limit your results into audio-, video- or RSS-files.

Furthermore you can limit the langauges, search in categories or search for special file types.

Google offers some of these functions to you, too. But Exalead’s variation is more practical.

 

You also can choose between 3 views

  1. text only
  2. text and thumbnail 
  3. text, thumbnail and category

Imagesearch

Exalead’s imagesearch doesn’t offer advantages compared to Google. You can refine you search by choosing a special image size or style of color (“color”, “Grayscale” “black & white”) like in Google’s imagesearcg

 

But in detail you’ll find a advantage:

Open an image in Google’s image search: At the top of the screen you’ll find an link that brings you back to the results.

But Exalead offers you some more functions: You can switch to the next following picture or you can also type in a new keyword you are looking for.

More functions/information

Personal Homepage

You also can create your own personal Exalead homepage. 

Create some Shortcuts on your personal Exalead homepage to achieve your favorite sites faster.

If you’ll find a website you like when you are searching with Exalead, adds it to your shortcuts

You have got some really good ideas making Exalead better? Post them in Exalead’s Web2.0-Forum. The Forum includes a Digg-like function. So everyone can rank your idea.

 

Exalead seems to be a very interesting alternative for Google users. Some really good functions, you won’t find in Googles websearch, and a well arranged website let Exalead be a competitor for Google.
