Spacetime goes webbased
Until now Spacetime, the visual search engine, could only be used as a stand alone browser. With that browser you can surf in 3D. You can shuffle through your pages.
Spacetime now released a new beta of SpaceTime3D which can run in any browser. You no longer need to download an application and can browse using Spacetime wherever you want.
Compared to the stand alone application the search seems to take a little bit longer in a browser, but then again, the search results are somewhat better. Whereas in the stand alone app searching trough regular search engines doesn't always work and the search results aren't all very accurate, in the browser version some good results are returned. Though the difference isn't very big. Also in the browserversion a couple of completely irrelevant results are returned.
In the stand alone version you could 'move around' your webpages and search results. In the browserversion you can't. And that was one of the 'special' features of Spacetime, a feature that made the browser stand out.
Concluding, Spacetime is not a Google-killer. It now has a nice feature which might be a bit competitive with Searchme. It's very smart of the company though to leave the stand alone app and choose to be all web based. That will certainly attract more users. However, the 'special' features have to return and most importantly: search results have to improve...
