KartOO Reloaded

It looks like Kartoo - the meta search engine which uses a Flash frontend - has undergone some major update. They have improved the layout - more text, less cartoon style - it's still too blue for my taste - why don't they use the cool new white background+soft gradients look? What looks really nice are the theme maps that Kartoo creates from the search results. But the bigger update is under the hood - quote:

1.Personalisation of results according to your interests and previous searches
2.An innovative and intuitive information management system: the Kapitaliser, for which KartOO SA has lodged a patent application.
3.A high performance and easy to use monitoring system

This could almost be called a RIA.

Kartoo is great. I read Mario's review and then went and used it. So far the most innovative aproach to a search engine that I have seen. All of the others are just a different design on the same exact search engine.

Great going Kartoo, and keep up the great work.
