New CC search UI
Mike Linksvayer, August 2nd, 2006
Today we turned on a new search interface offering tabbed access to Yahoo! and Google CC-enabled web searches and Flickr CC image search.
We hope that this new search user interface highlights the ease of discovering licensed content (including options to filter for only content that allows commercial or derivative use) and opportunities to do more.
How to access the new CC search interface:
- Vist http://search.creativecommons.org.
- From the Creative Commons home page click on the “Find” image.
- Get Firefox and select CC from the Firefox search bar.
Our first priority is to internationalize the search interface. Fortunately we have tools in place to tackle this.
We’ll add more search tabs as quality CC-enabled search engines come online. We’re especially eager to see audio- and video-specific search with the same features offered by Yahoo!, Google, and Flickr CC search.
Credit goes to our designer Alex Roberts for another marvelous design and implementation. The main creativecommons.org site is up next!
