Combine the element of Web
search with music playback and a mohawk-sporting,
ciggie-smoking dinosaur, and you get
a new service that works as you might expect it to.
Just click and play.
Ajax is responsible making it behave as
it does. Some might consider it bit too heavy on the
large print. Everything but the topmost menu is sized
big. But this is fairly easy to get accustomed to. And
there’s an upside to the design choice. The results are
easy to make sense of. If your music search produces an
especially large volume of material, this can really
prove helpful in finding what you’re looking for.
Most impressive with MixTurtle, whose
content sources are absent the picture, is the sheer
speed with which information is displayed. Begin to type
a keyword, and you’re immediately shown a selection of
choices in a drop-down overlay. You can select one
listed or continue with your query by manually inputting
any desired text. Once you’ve entered your search, the
rate of return is all but instant. I don’t recall
testing any other engine with such alacrity. Not
not any other. This little reptile has one heck of a
rocket affixed to its rear, for sure.
