Google updates it bread and butter product with a new data gathering front end that updates far more frequently.
For those of us who played with the Caffeine Search engine that Google beta tested last year, today's news isn't wholly unexpected. The Beta program was a new search engine, dubbed Caffeine, which constantly reindexes the web rather than doing it a bi-weekly intervals. This led to more, more recent and more relevant results.
Inexplicably, Google closed its search engine beta only months after opening with nary a word. I missed it. It was better than the default.
Today, it is back as the default Google Search engine. (Yay!) Results should be more relevant and more up to date.
