Netscape revamps search engine

Netscape Communications, a division of AOL Time Warner, has given its search engine a face-lift and minor surgery. The new service yields a greater number of search results from the Open Directory Project, an open-source directory of Web sites. Netscape also prominently offers the results from five other search engines--GoTo.com, Google, LookSmart, Lycos.com and Ask Jeeves--and it has simplified the search site's interface. The adjustments to Netscape's search engine come shortly after AOL Time Warner released Netscape 6.1, the first final upgrade to the Mozilla-based browser.
