A New Search Engine Focused On News
 

Advertisement

Recently, I've been exploring some different search engines. Today, I added another one to the mix: Newssift, recently launched in beta by the Financial Times Group. It's aimed primarily at people interested in business news; the idea is that it cuts out "the commercial clutter found with typical keyword search."

I've tried a few searches, on topics such as "General Motors" and "stock market," and I can't say the results were any better than those I found on Google News, but they weren't any worse. And Newssift has a nice-looking, easy-to-use interface. You can easily save a search, so if you look for news on the same topic day after day, you can simply go to "Saved Searches" and click on it. You don't have to set up an account or anything like that to save a search—it works right off the bat.

Test it out, and let us know what you think.
