Webaroo launches searchable offline web in India
Bangalore, Apr 19: Webaroo today launched a new software service that enabled consumers to instantly search web pages and view web sites anytime, anywhere, without an Internet connection, on their handhelds and laptop computers.
Available at www.webaroo.com, Webaroo was search unplugged. The Webaroo software and service provided a fast, free and ubiquitous web search experience on mobile devices with no connection at all, a company release here said.
Webaroo featured 'web packs' on a variety of subjects such as news, sports and major global cities, including New York, London and Mumbai, each of which contain thousands of relevant web pages identified by Webaroo's innovative alogrithms. In one simple step, users could also select and download their favourite web sites to save and search at their leisure.
''Time is ripe for India to be a developer of global consumer brands, not just an outsourcing centre,'' the release said, quoting Company CEO and Founder Rakesh Mathur.
