Quintura Inc., a Web search company, has announced the release of Quintura Search 1.0. Quintura Search can help a user to find relevant information on the Web faster by offering a visual map of related tags or a context-based "tag cloud." Quintura Search offers tags or hints contextually related to a keyword, designed to specify the context or the meaning of the keyword. Adding or subtracting tags from the query using the visual map of tags and a mouse click, "One-Click-Search", allows a user to specify the context or meaning of the keyword. It narrows the search to help find relevant information faster even if it has low ranking and is not displayed on the first pages of search results.
In addition, using Quintura Search, a user can create and share personalized search scopes allowing for the Web search to become more personal by: creating a personalized search scope using tags related to a search query; making search scope more specific and personalize the scope by adding or subtracting tags using a visual map; refining search results removing search links or Web sites from the result list; saving the search scope as a file and sharing it with others; and monitoring new information becoming available on the Web related to personal interests of the user. Quintura Search 1.0 is a client side application that utilizes a regular search engine to send and retrieve the results of a query. Quintura Search is free and can be downloaded from the Web site.
