For some people, searching for information without wasting time is an imperative. There is not a second to waste. Such people are journalists, writers, researchers, college students, and so forth.
Most of them are using Google to find what they’re looking and for, and that’s good. Google is the best search engine there is right now. However, you can further enhance the speed of looking up information with a program called Keyboadr that uses Google plus YouTube and Wikipedia at the same moment. The synergy created is awesome.
Web site Keyboardr is an as-you-type search mashup of Google (including blog and image search), Wikipedia, and YouTube with blazing speed. Once you see a result you like, just use your arrow keys to navigate to the result, then hit Enter to open it. The speed of Keyboardr is perhaps the most impressive feature, and if you’re a big fan of keyboard navigation, it’s got a lot to offer.
Keyboardr’s integration with YouTube, Wikipedia, and multiple Google search types brings a nice feature-set to a simple but well thought-out web application.
At Keyboardr you don’t need a mouse. You interact with the search results using your keyboard (hence the name Keyboardr.com) and don’t have to use the mouse for anything. Simply enter a search term and Keyboardr allows you to navigate the results with the arrow keys on your keyboard.
It sounds so simple but the result is really awesome. Suddenly searching feels fast and automated. Use Keyboardr for a while and the ‘old’ Google suddenly feels like Windows 95.
For the future there are big plans for Keyboardr. Keyboardr will utilize much more web services. Among from usual web search services like Google, they are planning to support Friendfeed, Delicious, Twitter, Flickr, Google Docs and many more.
The web page is real simple. A small search box with the words…Search Something! It also shows the date and a digital clock with ticking seconds in big black numbers. It looks very neat. Once you find the results of your search, press the Escape button and you’re ready to make another request.
I’ve been using Keyboardr for two days now, and it feel great. Why don’t you take it for a whirl? Good Day.
