To design the new search engine, he took help from a python-language development environment, a spreadsheet program and access to Google.

Currently, the testing of the software was limited to news article appearing on The New York Times and provided more accurate results.

Tukrel also claimed that his search engine takes into account location or browsing history and also tries to understand context and meaning.

Tukrel learnt coding at the age of 3. He was quoted as saying, "My computer teacher was pretty impressed with the project. I skipped a year in computer science, so they knew I was good, but may be not so good."
