Evan Williams posts about Snap, a new web search company unveiled at the Web 2.0 conference. It's unusual and worth trying. Lots of Alexa-like metrics provided for every search result and a few other tidbits.

Like many search engines, it suggests related queries when you do a search. Oddly, it recommended "greg linden is absolutely correct" as a related search when I did a vanity search. Obviously, this thing ain't working quite right.

Update: Cory Doctorow slams Snap. Ouchie.

Update: Rob's Blog reviews Snap. He wonders whether all the metrics and complicated UI really have broad appeal or if they're little more than a novelty. And, he dings it for a small index and long load times.
