They claim it's even better at answering questions:
"Presenting direct answers to your searches, front and center, has always been at the heart of the Ask.com experience, and we push further down that path today with the introduction of three new answer technologies: DADS, DAFS, and AnswerFarm. These technologies take both structured and unstructured data, and – instead of delivering a title and description for each document – they deliver answers."

It's actually surprisingly good on a broad range of queries (not just the examples they listed in their blog post).

Ars Technica now has an article about the new search as well, indicating it may be the best semantic search available right now:
