LookSmart Redesigns FindArticles.com

Mar 22, 2005

LookSmart, an Internet search company, has announced a redesign of FindArticles including tools and functionality that are designed to ease frustrations often associated with search, and improve the specificity and quality of the content returned. FindArticles' features include the ability to search by topic, or view only "Free Articles," in an effort to make it easier for Web searchers to find what they want without having to scroll through pages and pages of search results. Once searchers find what they're after, they can save the entire page with Furl -- LookSmart's personalized, online bookmarking service. FindArticles gives searchers the ability to sort through a collection of sources by article date, length, relevance, or publication name, and can refine the relevance of their results by inserting new search terms as needed. Other new features include "hot new articles" and "top articles ever" for each of FindArticles' categories: Arts & Entertainment, Automotive, Business & Finance, Computers & Technology, Health & Fitness, Home & Garden, News & Society, Reference & Education, and Sports.
