Ask.com launches Askx.com

December 21, 2006

Ask.com is the latest search engine to release a testbed interface to trial new technologies, ideas and try to simplify the task of searching the web for users everywhere.

Askx.com is a much more simplified interface making use of Ajax. It features a three-column layout with the left hand column being used for suggestions for broadening or alternate searches, the middle column featuring both the sponsored and organic search results and the right hand column featuring results from shopping, images and video.

It looks much better than the current Ask.com interface, much slicker and easier to use. The left hand column suggestions are really good, the alternatives are highly relevant to the searches I tested which is a really useful feature especially for research.

So, it looks great, loads quickly, is functional and ultimately useful. Wonder how long it will be till some of the features get pulled into the main Ask.com site.
