New AltaVista adds refine options, chart view

Digital is repainting its AltaVista Web search engine. On Saturday, the new-look user interface will debut although the curious can already see a preview.

New tools let users specify or block out pages with frequently occurring words after hitting the 'refine' button. AltaVista can display findings as a list or as an org-chart.

The new release also supports multi-lingual searches.
