Wolfram Alpha Redesigns For 2011

Next time you visit Wolfram Alpha, you’ll be greeted by a shiny, new, colorful home page — that’s just one of a few design tweaks the site has announced on its blog.

There are also some interesting tweaks to the results pages. One is the addition of linked data inside the search results, which you can see on this screenshot.


I did a search for “space needle,” and in the data that Wolfram Alpha returns, the words “Seattle,” “Washington,” and “United States” are all links that run searches on each term.

The data sets also now have dog-ear reveals that can be used to get access to links for copying the text or saving the images that appear in the search results.

Wolfram Alpha says the changes were needed to “allow expansion for upcoming consumer, enterprise, and developer products” later this year.
