Wednesday 24 October 2012 | 18:27 CET | News
Tiscali owner Renato Soru is preparing for a November launch of iStella, a new search engine that will challenge Google in Italy, according to a report in Corriere delle Communicazioni. iStella will analyse 3 billion pages, both Italian and foreign, which are the most popular among Italians. The project also aims to involve foundations, public bodies and individuals in order to include their archives on the internet. The search engine will have a wiki structure, with all users being able to contribute to its expansion, inserting their own study materials or historical documents.
