December 22, 2006 Has New Test Interface

Someone discovered Ask X, a new web 2.0ish interface for Looks ok, the one interesting thing in there is the 'add to my stuff' button that appears when you mouseover search results. Haven't seen where to recover these though, potentially very useful feature though. Oh, and it suddenly decided that my browser wasn't new enough, or didn't have the settings it needed, even though I just completed a couple of test searches.

Oh well, it is still a testbed. Interesting to see what comes of it, and if it has any chance of gaining ground against google. I have a feeling not though, simply because of the google mindshare. I'm probably more interested in seeing google integrate some of the nice touches that has put in the new interface, which is a bad thought I know!
