A previously reviewed nettool recently announced the release of its final version. Google (see the June 4, 1999 Scout Report
), a search engine originally developed at the Stanford University Computer Science Department, rates the relevance of a Webpage to a particular search query in part by examining how many other Webpages link to it. While maintaining the valuable feature Uncle Sam, an index to US government sites, a new feature has been added in the final version. GoogleScout is that new feature which offers an additional list of related URLS for each search return.
