Who it is for?
WauSearch intended to be your search engine. You can satisfy simple or very complex queries. It is designed for the normal and expert users, archivists, researchers, reference professionals and any information professional.
Wausearch is the result of a large-scale research project, focused on main search engines on the Web, such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, Yandex, Baidu, or Duck Duck Go. The objective of WauSearch is development of new technologies and applications that improve the capabilities of existing search engines, providing services and utilities that have not yet been conceived or incorporated in their designs. WauSearch is one of the first results obtained with this approach. Although WauSearch has been developed in a record time of 3 months, the original project from which it stems, it takes more than 1 year in active and has discovered several vulnerabilities related to the protection of the information in the search engines.
The objective of WauSearch is to provide all the information you need from the Web. WauSearch is a platform for test and experimentation in order to incorporate improvements in the concepts of information retrieval, ranking of results, query assists, information representation, utilities, exploration of results, that allow to innovate in the search engines sector.
