Surchur’s Dashboard-style Results

Surchur compiles a dashboard of news or media modules for whatever you search for. Enter google, for instance, and click the search button. The page now displays results from Digg, Delicious, Twitter, Flickr, Photobucket, Google Blog Search, video sites and more. The site was built using PHP framework Symfony and the SimplePie RSS parser, Surchur’s founder Todd Hogan tells me. Todd also says “we cache all pages as HTML for 24 hours (much shorter for popular surches to keep them fresh) to reduce queries and requests to other sites”.
