The article focuses on a web search engine called Re:Search that was developed by Jaime Teevan, an employee of the firm Microsoft Research. The search engine sorts Internet search results according to a user's personal data, previous searches, and browsing history. Teevan discovered that people often look for information they have already found before and most of all web pages visited and one-third of all search queries are repeats. Re:Search relies on information from a user's past searches to determine which items are more relevant to him or her, keeps clicked hyperlinks in their previous positions and inserts new links in positions where they will be noticed easily.
