This thread is for comments about the new beta of SearchTempest Version 3.
A few features of the new mode:
- Obviously a total visual redesign. Less ugly.
- Streamlined the key functions - should be especially useful for new users. Very obvious required fields "Where" and "What". All the advanced options are still there, but clutter is (hopefully) greatly reduced.
- The results page has also been tweaked so more focus is on the important part - the results. Page numbers, search info, etc, is still there, but is displayed in a less obtrusive manner.
- Behind the scenes changes should speed up page loads. (Work is ongoing on this, so look forward to further improvements.)
- Modify your search right from a tab in the results page
- Amazon results available
- Better iPhone support, with more improvements to come.
- Recent/Saved searches. Really cool stuff here. Flag all your most common searches to easily modify or run again. Also access all your most recent searches quickly and easily. Eventually there will be the ability to log in too, so you can access the saved searches on multiple machines.
- As well as zip/postal codes, you'll be able to enter the name of a city to search a specified distance from that city.
OK, feedback away!
