Ask.com is busy experimenting a new search interface which is called Ask X. The interface is loaded with several features. A steel background dons the homepage and for your search you will be transported to a page which is divided into a three-panel interface laden with various search features.
Ask.com has given an account of features on each panel.
“Left: A search control panel that stays with you, complete with Zoom Related Search and Search Suggestions that update as you type.
Middle: Results front and center to provide clutter-free information without having to scroll down the page, and Binoculars to preview results.
Right: A preview of other types of search results, including video, news, images, blogs, shopping, encyclopedia and more.”
