At hakia.com, we’ve taken a closer look at this problem and developed a product that can significantly shorten your time to search: it’s called hakia ScoopBar and its genie relies on hakiaâ€™s semantic technology. hakia ScoopBar is a browser toolbar that automatically finds the answer of your question on the Web page you’re visiting, scrolling to the relevant position, and visually highlighting the relevant sentence(s). hakia ScoopBar saves you lots of time by alleviating the hassles of skimming the full document to find the right information. It’s particularly useful in the long-tail Web sites and contextually rich sites like Wikipedia and IRS.
Now let me explain you the concept with a few screenshots. In the example below, I ask hakia.com “how much gold was produced in the period of California Gold Rush” and follow the first link.
Voila, hakia directs me to the Web page that contains the desired information, and positions the scroller so that I see the relevant sentence instantly with no extra effort. With this feature, you’re no longer need to do a 2nd Search.
hakia ScoopBar also offers more great features. It allows you to copy and save the pertinent information you may want to reference later on â€“ like bookmarking but more specific and targeted. This saves tons of time for saving research and references whether you are searching the Web for schoolwork, work, or just for personal interest.
For more information about the hakia ScoopBar, check out this exclusive page and watch our demo. Or download and see it by yourself. It’s available for Internet Explorer and a Firefox version is due by October. I already have tested the Firefox version and, it works flawlessly.
And, once you download and use the hakia ScoopBar, youâ€™ll save so much time, youâ€™ll have free time for 2nd Life.
