Why not use A9 over Google?

I am not sure if A9‘s product placement is completely understood. They add value to the typical Google search. The value is acheived by focusing on websites that you think are absolutely relevent to the query your about to place. On the other hand, selecting those sites from a possible list of thousands (or even 5) is tedious. I would not use A9 for my everyday needs.

    I liked the a9 interface.

    Most of the time when Im searching for a movie or whatever, I never include the word movie, to hint at what area of search I’d like. Somehow the a9 interface did feel good to me, but it’s too cluttered. Doesn’t appeal as much as the simplicity of Google.

    The thing you said about refining the search. That is the next step yes. But it needs to be well done in a way without stress on the end user. We’ll talk more on voice.
