Add a Cloud to Yahoo or Google Searches

Is there much you can do to improve on the modern search engines?  They all do the same thing, so it comes down to who does it best – but is that the end of it?  Maybe not.  Inserting a cloud of search terms may help make even the best search engine out there even better.  Search Cloudlet inserts smart tag clouds into Google and Yahoo interface to help you search faster.

The way this add-on for Firefox works is that it contains the most relevant information about the search term in question.  The more important the word, the bigger it gets in the text link cloud.  Here is more about the add-on from the developers:

If you often use Google or Yahoo to search through news or blogs, then Search Cloudlet is exactly what you need. For News search there are Source Cloud and Location Cloud. These clouds can help you determine country, region or state of the found news and their publishers. For Blogs search there is also Author Cloud view. You can use these context-aware clouds to narrow your search the same way you would do it with tag clouds.

Overall, I found this extension very useful.  You can find out more about the project at GetCloudlet.com and pick up the extension via Firefox’s Add-on site.
