a new interactive search visualization tool that enables users to compare the search results from web, image, video, blog, tagging, news engines or RSS feeds sources. a "crystal" consists of the overlapping results from different search engines (e.g. Google, Yahoo, MSN, Ask, Wisenut, ...). the "categorization" view represents the overlap by different icons whose shapes & colors encode all the different combinations possible. the "cluster" view display overlap by circular distance from the center. the "spiral" view places all the found items along an expanding spiral.
as a unique feature, people can embed searchCrystal as a fully interactive widget on websites or blogs to share personalized crystals.
