- As I already posted macro content search engines like Quintura can not compete with Google which is the best in this macro content field.
- Quintura has old fashioned snippets same as Google.
- Quintura is too slow compared to Google and users are impatient.
- The process of refining the query is too complicated for the average user.
- Searching by computers has built-in problems that current search engines (including Quintura) can not solve like: homonyms, synonyms, open questions (like research), microcontent duplicates
Let's see what others say about Quintura:
- Quintura Search : http://www.pandia.com/sew/90-quintura-search.html
- Quintura is a new search technology that will be ready for download in October.
- Quintura also uses dynamic clusterization that builds or changes clusters on the fly depending on user input.
- Quintura co-founders Yakov Sadchikov and Alexander Ershov have a background in research and development in the area of neural network and artificial intelligence and are inspired by the Pythagoreans philosophy of quintessence.
- Quintura Search is a free software application that operates on top of search engines and web content aggregators.
- Quintura Search beta : http://www.pandia.com/sew/116-quintura-search-beta.html
- New search tools always intrigues us here at Pandia. Quinturas claim is that their software helps a user find the relevant information on the Web easier and faster. In our tests, we did not find Quintura to be especially fast, but it does have a fascinating concept.
- How it works:
Quintura utilizes natural associative search principles. The idea is that what they call an active semantic net, the technology functions in tune with the human brain.
- Quintura provides an interface for conventional web search engines. You can choose to search in Google, Google News, Yahoo!, MSN or Microsoft.com. The search results are displayed on the right hand side of the window.
- If you are in a hurry, Quintura is perhaps not for you. We already mentioned that the search tool is not particularly fast and the process of refining your search by following the associations does take a little time.
- Ways to explore the web
but if you are exploring a topic, Quintura might be just what you need. Clicking on the associations and adding or excluding concepts, the map changes. This way you are provided with a visualization of the way your topic relates to other topics and before you know it, you are on a safari of the web guided by the associations provided by Quintura.
- As the amount of information of the web just keeps increasing, there will no doubt be need for tools like Quintura.
- 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.

(http://www.quintura.com) announced the final release of Quintura Search 1.0.The free, downloadable software provides Web search results with a visual map of related tags or a context-based tag cloud.
