Factbites, a New Kind of Search Result

Factbites is a different kind of search engine. Instead of just presenting a list of sites with your key words highlighted, it presents the results in the form of readable, relevant sentences and focuses on presenting sites that provide meaningful content.

"Factbites was created by Rapid Intelligence, a content technology company based in Sydney, Australia. Our focus is upon computational linguistics, data mining, data warehousing and artificial intelligence. These competencies are demonstrated on Factbites, a search engine more interested in content analysis than link popularity."

They do warn that this is a beta site so don't try unusual combinations of words. Use the site to locate "meaningful content about real topics."
