Abstract

A program is disclosed that provides a mechanism for displaying categorized results from a search engine. The invention describes a system for a) Grouping search results displayed in a web page or window frame into categories; and b) Presenting those results in the page in non-linear formats according to those categories (e.g., portlets). This categorical representation and non-linear format of representing and displaying search results would drastically enhance the user experience and cut down the time taken by users to find relevant entries among search results. Users would rapidly focus on the relevant category, thus filtering out immediately most of the non-relevant results (i.e., fast and effective pruning of the search tree).
