Ask.com

Search engine Ask.com has launched a new user interface that includes an assortment of new features and integrates image, video, and music content into basic search results.

Many, many years ago, when this search engine was known as "Ask Jeeves", it was - without doubt - the best search engine available. I would even go so far as to say that if it had not been "molested" by its new parents, it would today rank on a par with Google.


The Internet Archive Wayback Machine shows you how the "old Ask" looked back then,
[March 22, 1995], but sadly the old engine is no longer there and all search queeries divert to the new Ask.com.

So, Ask.com has given us a new look for the search results with a facelift that is is slick and impressive, the results themselves still aren't. It is still no better than, and probably worse, than many other players in this field.
