What’s New?

Gataga has just notified TechCrunch of new functionality:

Gataga photo search (through Flickr)
Gataga Mobile

Photo Search:

The new functionality allows tag searches of flickr images. It works well, if a little slow (give them time, their server has been crushed with users). This is a great addition to the overall tagging meta-search, and hopefully will be integrated with normal searches in the near future.
