Should You be Using Ask.com3D?

The popular search engine,, has released its
new Ask.com3D. The upgrades are worth checking out.

From an IAC Press Release (6/5/2007):

"Ask.comĀ®, a leading search engine and wholly-owned
business of IAC (NASDAQ: IACI), today unveiled Ask3D,
a completely re-engineered and redesigned version of Ask3D includes powerful new search technology,
an innovative three-panel design, and unique new features
that give people what they need, faster. With the new version
of, people get the most relevant and customized
information they need from the best range of content available,
including videos and music clips, and makes it all immediately
accessible on one page. Ask3D replaces the previous version of and is now available at"

See the complete press release for more details on the
new search functions. Two of my favorite new features
are the "Query Expression" panel on the left side of
the screen for easy search refinement, and the "binocular"
feature that allows researchers to view a thumbnail of
search results from the results screen.
