Yolink, at first glance, looks very similar to QTsaver.
They both extract relevant paragraphs from several internet documents into one results' page.
QTsaver started in 2005.
Yolink - in 2008 (under the name ChunkIt! until 2009).
Yolink, was developed by TigerLogic, a company from Portland, OR.
But while QTsaver was standing alone using results from Google, Yahoo and Wikipedia, Yolink is an Add-on to browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and a widget for blog tools like WordPress and Typepad.
You can see a few nice presentations of Yolink in action on:
Yolink is based on a Patent "Systems and Methods of Displaying Document Chunks in Response to a Search Request US 20090216736 A1" by Jeffrey Matthew Dexter and Robert Smik.
QTsaver was closed on 2006.
Yolink is still running, and I hope that it will succeed more and more, since the current Google-like Search Engine Results Page serves the giant money makers more than the knowledge seekers, and "money blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the innocent" (Deuteronomy 16:19 ).
