Watson - Web searching done right Pick of the Week

Watson provides a new way to search the web, via a multi-paned application window. With Jaguar, Apple reproduced many of these tools in Sherlock3, but Watson still wins on speed, features (more tools), and general application design.

Consider the movie search tool ... enter your zip code on the right-side panel, click the name of a movie in column one, click the theater name in column two, and then see the show times in column three. Meanwhile, you can view the trailer by clicking in the bottom pane. Searches on yahoo are similarly slick, with the columns helping to navigate the various categories.

Watson may not be around forever (I'm not certain if the developer is working in conjunction with the web sites in use, whereas Apple most certainly secured authorization to do what they do), but for now, it's my favorite web searching utility tool.
