Whonu – Online Search & Discovery Tool January 23, 2006

Posted by Ced in Online, Search, Services.

Whonu is a flash-based online search/discovery tool that tapped into the power of multiple search engines.

I felt that if I could bring together the power of all these great search tools into a single interface, I just might have the research, discovery, idea-generating tool I’ve been looking for. Thus, whonu.com was born. [Derek Franklin, Whonu creator]

Making a search results in these groups of links:

  • Web content found by top search engines (Google, Yahoo, Ask, AOL, MSN, Alexa, Clusty, Exalead, A9, and Snap)
  • Directories (Yahoo, DMOZ)
  • Print (Google Books)
  • Public Domain (Gutenberg.org, Creative Commons)
  • Other Search Engines (Gigablast, Golexa, Grokker, Kartoo, Surfwax, Teoma, Wisenut)
  • Specific domains (.net, .edu, .org, .gov, .info, .biz, .tv, .museum)
  • Specific page locations (page titles, links, URLs)

If you can’t seem to get the results you want using your usual favorite search engine, maybe Whonu can help you.
