Ask has changed its image lately and added some new tools. The butler was killed off in favor of a new, clean interface (as stated in my last post) with only a Search Tools panel on the right side separating it from Google’s clean interface.
Also, now when you do a search there is a pair of binoculars next to the search results so that you can take a snapshot look at the homepage of a website with out actually going there. This will be helpful for those who don’t wish to be trapped on slow loading sites.
Anyway, its worth checking out. All you had to do was Ask.
