Ask.com launches a revamped Web search site that features new technology and an updated design. The site is divided into three parts, with the ability to narrow or expand a search and see related results on the left side, the main Web search results in the center, and related results from images, video, news and other types of listings on the right. rnrn
Hovering the cursor over images enlarges them, while hovering over video will play it in the thumbnail. Clicking on certain audio links plays a 30-second clip. Click on any photo to get a full-sized view.rnrn

Seeing the forest through the trees is the theme of Ask.com’s home page.
An image search gives more than just pictures. There are suggestions in the left, the actual images in the center and more information on the right.
Search through today’s news on “search engines.” Note the RSS feeds.
When you put your mouse on a story headline, an icon comes up on the right. Clicking the icon will save the story/blog for later reading.
Mousing over the “binoculars” icon will give you a preview of the site.
News is broken into sections but unlike Google, each story is listed separately.
Ask.com gives top billing to blogs and makes it easy to search through them.
While in the blog section, you can still search for news.
It’s even got a link and a description of Google.
