The LeapFish search experience empowers consumers with the ability to manage
the two things they do most often online: "search" and "share."  "Real-time
and social are major movements and it's time consumers are empowered with an
ability to share to the real-time and social Web when they are most engaged -
while searching the Web," said Ben Behrouzi, Founder and CEO of LeapFish. 

The new search platform seamlessly combines the ability to search and share
real-time and traditional content in any media format in a single interface
across a range of different sites (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, Digg).  

"Aside from the Web's growing size and variety there is an emerging duality of
"real-time" and "traditional," which now requires a completely different
search experience.  One that includes both the content and the "contributor"
in the search experience, such that both traditional and real-time searching
and sharing are integrated seamlessly in our use of this Living Web," said
Behrouzi.

The new LeapFish search experience offers consumers a real-time search engine,
a technically advanced customizable personal homepage, more multi-media
results from the entire Web and the ability to share any piece of content
found online.

LeapFish Search Engine Features :

Real-Time Search Engine :  A fresh multi-media real-time search engine
capturing results from all containers of real-time content (e.g., Twitter,
YouTube, Twitpic, Flickr).

Searching and Sharing :  Easy and convenient sharing features empower users to
merge traditional content into the social and real-time Web as they search and
find content anywhere online (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Digg).

Variety of the Web :  Delivering rich multi-media content from the deep and
wide new Web via integration of leading authorities in website aggregation,
videos, images, news, blogs, tweets and much more on every search query (e.g.,
YouTube, CNN, Twitter).

Personal Internet Dashboard :  Technically advanced customizable personal
homepage allowing consumers to build their own dashboard to the Internet by
adding multiple news feeds, blogs, applications, tools and more (e.g.,
Facebook Application, Twitter Application, Mashable Feed)

Until a few years ago consumers came to the Web to just search for simple
information.  Now the Web is a place where people come to also share
information.  Information today that is multi-media and more complex in
nature.  "LeapFish refers to this new place as The Living Web, and has
developed an evolved search engine to help consumers get the most from it - a
service to help consumers Live the Web," said Behrouzi
