Drag & Drop Search Engine: SortFix
There’s a new search engine in town that makes it really easy to refine your searches. SortFix has a little tutorial that runs on its home page when you first go there, to illustrate how to use it. You start with a simple search, and then SortFix gives you a series of buckets. Potential modifiers, called power words, appear in the left-hand bucket, and you can drag them into either the add to search bucket or the remove bucket. When you click on the search button, you get a nicely pared down list of results with a new set of power words. Again, you can drag them into the add to search or remove bucket to further refine your search.
Results come from Google, Yahoo, or The Open Directory (dmoz.org), whichever you select. Pretty cool.
