Grokker

Grokker’s web-based, hosted solution, federates internal enterprise information, subscription content and public web services into an intuitive interface that facilitates information discovery and actionable research.
Grokker displays search results as bubbles inside bigger bubbles. The bigger the bubble, the more results (Web page hits or sub-bubbles) inside it. It is very easy to zoom in and out of subcategories to get a good understanding of a result set. The interface is fluid and Grokker is fun to use. A control panel, which is unique to this engine, lets you refine date ranges and data sources. The company’s main business is providing search technologies to big companies, but Grokker is a good consumer search visualizer nonetheless.
