Quintura Inc., a Web search company, has announced the release of its Web search software, Quintura Search 1.0 beta designed to help users find relevant information on the Web easier and faster.
Quintura Search offers a visual semantic map, the map of keywords, and relationships between keywords. Adding or subtracting keywords from a query using the map and a mouse click, "One-Click Search", allows a user to specify the context or meaning of the keyword, therefore narrowing the search and finding the relevant information. Quintura Search helps to find the relevant information otherwise difficult or impossible to find. Quintura Search works "The Way People Search" giving hints and leading a user in the direction he/she wants to search, helping to specify the context or the meaning of a keyword, thus finding the relevant information even if it has low ranking. Quintura Search 1.0 is a client side application. It utilizes a regular search engine to send and retrieve the results of a query.
Quintura Search 1.0 beta is available as public beta and can be downloaded at the Web site. The final release of Quintura Search 1.0 is expected by the end of 2005 and the launch of online search services in Q2, 2006.
