EVRI is a new search engine that recently appeared on the web.
Pronounced, “every”, this beta search service is different in many ways. It appears to have as much in common with a news reader as it does with a searching device.
The site seems more focused on news events and people in the news then it does on deep information searching. Even a search on my favourite search term, “Salmon”, turned a lot of info on people named Salmon but very little on the fish.
Nevertheless, EVRI has a couple of interesting features that are woth noting. For example, check out the “Filter by category” list on left side side of the screen (See picture above). That list is dynamic and changes with each search. Now that’s cool.
So is the search results page which contains information and links to articles, images, videos, quotes, Tweet posts, Amazon.com and Google Maps, just to name a few. There also a “Recent connections” diagram that looks really neat. It shows other topics which are connected to the main search term.
EVRI is a very cool search engine with some very innovative ways to share and present information. Unfortunately it seems to lack the depth to make it a serious research tool.
