Nibbo – search your way

Nibbo is a cute new meta search engine based around Google tech. Yeah I know, but wait…it’s actually rather good. The whole idea is to add a package of useful information around a standard Google search to make it easy to find extra stuff relating to your results.

The clever bit is the intelligent use of pop up hover boxes and Ajaxy type inline preview pages which mean you can preview additional info such as Wikipedia links, images, Twitter posts etc all without leaving the main search results page. Result? A super fast scan of a wide range of search data. Try it, you might actually like it. And if you sign in, it will sync with your Google account and remember your settings etc. Nice.

 We believe that there’s a lot of room for improvement in web searching, and we wanted to do something about it. This is the reason why Nibbo was born: to offer an improved way to find whatever you’re looking for. While other search engines offer only one type of search at a time, Nibbo will show a preview of multiple search types in an unobstrusive way, and provide information like the number of results that are to be expected for the different engines. The type and order of those previews is completely configurable, as well as the default search settings.
