Another search engine!? Wait a minute - don't dismiss this one just yet.

The Sortfix Internet search engine uses existing powerhouses, Google and Yahoo, but, it adds an interactive element in which users drag words into categories that refine the search.

Too troublesome for someone used to speed-surfing the web but, what about portable applications? It would be useful to touch and drag words with a single finger.

Implications - The idea of creating the Sortfix search engine was to make life easier for those searching for info on the web. Sortfix explains that if you ask the right questions when using a search engine, you will usually get the answer you are looking for right away. The search engine is sort of like a teaching tool that encourages you to be specific when asking questions.
