Aiming to give a personal touch to searching the Web, the first Internet search engine featuring real time help from real people launched Wednesday.
The free service allows users to chat online with the company's agents to find sites of interest. Webhelp.com claims that it "will tap into 60 percent of the Web," and promises that searches will take around six minutes.
After entering a query a window loads where users can receive recommendations in real time and discuss the relevance of the results. The process is actually quite time consuming as the agents only return one site at a time.
The company has also launched the Webhelp Express Service, which gives users immediate, priority assistance for $9.99 per month.
