The Data Visualization of Search Engines

The following four search engines all use visualization in a unique and innovative way:

Ujiko
Very unique, AI features and linked to Kartoo. Ujiko has a very interactive visualization. It uses thumbnails, favorites and categories. Some say it's ugly, but I think beautiful.

Kartoo
3-dimensional visualization. Customized and beautiful. Recently updated, it's one of the best.

Quintura

Very customizable, supports keyword development and also has Quintura for Kids.

TouchGraph
Search Google or AOL by using mind maps - almost as good as Kartoo. New features include color, sizing and web thumbnails.

Grokker
Grok for one search, many sources. Very useful.
