PreFound Gets Considerably More Web 2.0

In January, I complained about PreFound, a new search engine that enables you to “search what people have already found”. I called them “very Web 1.0” because they lacked unique URLs for search results, didn’t have RSS feeds and required a download to participate in their search community.

Subsequently, I had a few friendly email exchanges with a company executive where I fleshed out my arguments. I assume they heard these complaints from other people (Lord knows they shouldn’t rely on me), because they made a bunch of improvements:

Kudos to PreFound for listening, making changes, and letting me know after they’re made.
