Heapr Searches Google, Twitter, Wolfram Alpha And Wikipedia

heaprSearch engine aggregators which combine results from multiple sites are nothing that new, but Heapr combines the expected Google results with Twitter, Wolfram Alpha and Wikipedia for a pretty contemporary mix of results.

Heapr presents Google-generated results on the left-hand side of the screen, while you can choose between the other sources at right. Arguably, Wolfram Alpha's the most interesting addition, since Wikipedia results often show up high in Google anyway, though in practice Wolfram can't cope well with many standard searches. One downside: the site uses the main Google US engine, which gives notably different results than the Australian site.



    The site also has Google image search coupled with Flickr and its video search allows downloading and watching from YouTube, Hulu, and Vimeo
