Quintura, a Moscow-based company with an office in Alexandria, Virginia, markets a line of search products for the visually inclined. Quintura Search is slick desktop client for searching the web. It renders search results from just about every major search engine and even some of the blog search engines.
Quintura has a unique two pane layout which provides a cloud or web of related search terms in the left pane and the actual search results in the right pane. Upon hovering over a search term in the left pane the search results dynamically change to match the new search term in the right pane as shown in the screen-shot above. Quintura layout draws parallels to Visual Thesaurus which is a thesaurus product review previously on Somewhat Frank. Some other interesting features wrapped into Quintura include the ability to save searches which could come in handy for common searches as well as the ability to remove individual search results items, bulk search result items from the same domain and add a search result to favorites. All of these features could come in handy at one time or another. I could see Quintura being very helpful to anyone doing search engine marketing or search engine optimization.
Yakov Sadchikov, Quintura Co-founder, Quintura communicated that they had just launched an online version of the service in Russia. If you speak Russian you can check out the now live online Russian version of Quintura here. Yakov also said that they are in the process of beta testing the English online version of the product as well. If it is anything like the desktop version it is going provide an excellent search experience for a visually inclined searcher.
