//Yep …  Collecta is the latest entrant in the search wars. Its a realtime search engine, means it scans the Internet, searching through news stories, status updates, blog posts, Facebook micro-blogging sites such as Twitter, blogs comments and other sources. Collecta was built based on the open messaging standard XMPP.

Its not like the other search engines, use Collecta only to search for “hot-topic” (what is happening right now) like iPhone, Ubuntu, Windows 7, etc. and the results are impressive. I spent some time playing with the sample pages and wow,  the posted search results were really up-to-date(less than a minute). Results came from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, blogs and everywhere else.

“The web is alive with real-time information. So why search a stale archive? Collecta monitors the update streams of news sites, popular blogs and social media, and Flickr, so we can show you results as they happen.” says on Collecta website in a note.

Another insteresting feature is that you can leave multiple searches running simultaneously to receive a continuous stream of results. I think its one of the best real time search engine on the web for the time being. Check it out.
