Core idea of this disclosure include: a new browser navigation user experience for searching, a way to intelligently narrow down search scope based on web site content and user feedback, a method to provide feedback for a given research result entry like (relevant, irrelevant, exactly), and a method for improving precise matching using website metadata.
