“Zuula 2.0″ Goes Live

The “major upgrade” that you’ve been hearing about here, on our Twitter feed, and on our Facebook page, has finally gone live.  A totally new version of Zuula is what you’ll now see when you go to www.zuula.com.

If you’re a regular user of Zuula, we think you’ll be excited by what you’ll find in this upgrade.  On the surface, the upgrade may seem like just a simple update to Zuula’s user interface.  But do a few searches, switch among the various search engine tabs, and you’ll see that Zuula is now a lot more powerful and convenient to use. 

Internally, we have been using the codename “Zuula 2.0″ to describe this new version of Zuula.  We think that those of you who know Zuula well will immediately understand why.

For those of you who are new to Zuula, we hope you’ll take some timeto learn more about the powerful search tool thousands of people around the world use each day.  We think you’ll be impressed.  Zuula is not just another ordinary search tool.

The press release announcing our latest upgrade contains most of the details about what’s new in Zuula 2.0.  Here it is:

Zuula Launches Powerful New Version Of Its Popular Search Service

- Zuula now makes it easier than ever to get the best out of all the top search engines by highlighting differences in results from different search engines. 
- The new version of Zuula also significantly increases speed and convenience with features such as continuously scrolling pages, a ‘Tags’ search type, and suggestions of similar websites.

Princeton, NJ – October 5, 2010 — Zuula LLC today officially announced the release of a major new version of its Internet search service, Zuula (www.zuula.com).  The new version adds a broad range of new features that make Zuula more powerful and more convenient.

Zuula has always made it easy to view search results from all the top search engines, including Google, Yahoo, and Bing.  Now Zuula goes a step further by automatically comparing results returned by different search engines for the same search, and then highlighting the results that are new to the user.

“We think users will be very excited about this new feature, which we call ‘Dynamic Pruning’,” said Tim Hunt, Zuula’s President.  “As always, users can get results at Zuula from their favorite, trusted search engine.  But when they don’t find what they are seeking with their favorite engine, Zuula enables them to check other search engines and have the results highlighted that they have not already seen.”

The newly released version of Zuula also adds real-time search suggestions and a new continuous scrolling mode for all search types.  With continuous scrolling, users can simply continue to scroll down the page for more results, rather than having to click on links for separate pages.  Although continuous scrolling is now the default viewing mode at Zuula, users still have the option of selecting traditional page-by-page viewing and having it be the default when they are at Zuula.

In addition to dynamic pruning, real-time search suggestions, and continuous scrolling, Zuula also has added a new search type and multiple new search engines to its existing search types.  The new ‘Tags’ search type includes eight new search sources, including social bookmarking and website recommendation services like Delicious and StumbleUpon.  The ‘News’ search type has been significantly expanded with six new search resources, including Digg, Reddit, and Slashdot.

“We have expanded to include almost sixty of the top search result providers in seven categories” said Dr. Hunt.  “Whether you are searching the Web, images, video, news, blogs, jobs, and now tags, with Zuula, you not only get results from your favorite search engine, but also from many other great sites that will help you find the results you are seeking.”

Great to see this upgrade to Zuula. The new features look like they’ll be really useful.

Just so you know, there seems to be an issue with the formatting in the header of the results pages when doing job searches on Zuula. It’s not anything major, but it seems to be off a bit.

Thanks, ChuckH, for the tip about the header formatting issue in Zuula job search. We’re working on a fix to the problem, and the solution probably will take effect sometime tomorrow.

Don’t hesitate to let us know any other issues you come across.

Update (2010-10-19): This issue with the job search header area should be resolved. In fact, it was resolved a while ago; I just forgot to post an update here. If anyone is still coming across the problem — or any other problem — feel free to post about the issue here, and we’ll look into it. – Boris.

I have just discovered Zuula in a blog post and I have to say I am pretty much impressed. Your search engine really works great. However it’s weird in German blogs there is almost no news for Zuula in 2010.
