Fast Search & Transfer announced that Alltheweb.com, its search technology showcase, is fully adopting XHTML and CSS. In doing so, AlltheWeb is now faster to load and can be displayed consistently across a wider range of Web browsers and browser platforms. In addition, these new standards provide a future opportunity for AlltheWeb users to perform their searches on platforms such as mobile phones, PDAs, among others. FAST has also revealed several new “skins” for AlltheWeb, enabling users to personalize the look and feel of AlltheWeb. An assortment of skins have been created through AlltheWeb Alchemist, a tool FAST unveiled earlier this year, allowing technically-minded users to develop customized views of Web, multimedia, news and categorized search results from AlltheWeb via CSS. FAST plans to continually experiment and add newer skins to AlltheWeb’s skins gallery as end users submit them. www.fastsearch.com
