Quintura is essentially a visual search engines that uses a tag cloud with the help of Yahoo’s index to provide users with a varied range of related searches.  Having the ability to visually navigate through related results means that users can select terms that they previously may have overlooked.  So although it may never threaten the big three’s dominance, Quintura has gained applause from some of the industries leading figures and may find itself being emulated by others in the future.
