Browser ViewWebThresher interface illustration

WebThresher provides a private web browser that shows a live view of any clicked result together with the index, enhanced results and recipe, allowing multiple levels of verification that a particular site actually contains the information you seek

Search RefinementWebThresher interface illustration

As WebThresher processes the results it provides, it remembers every word of every page of every resultant website, essentially reading the sites for you. You may then type words and/or phrases into the Refine Box enabling the user to see only the sites containing those words and/or phrases. Uniquely, these secondary searches then lend themselves to further refinement.
