Groxis Inc. announced on Wednesday that
Grokker 2.1, the company’s visual search tool, is now compatible with Mac OS X. The software was previously available as a Beta release for the operating system. Grokker uses its four plug-ins — The Web (covering the AltaVista, MSN, WiseNut, Yahoo! and Teoma search engines), Amazon.com, Google and My Files — to produce visual maps of the data you’re looking for, whether it’s on the Internet or on your hard drive. It features a fully functional Web browser and allows you to build, edit and save visual maps containing up to 2,000 items in each. Version 2.1 builds maps faster, adds the Google plug-in, highlights query keywords in different colors and more. It requires Mac OS X v10.2.2, a G3 processor, 256MB RAM, 20MB free hard drive space, Java 1.4.1 and Safari 1.0. A 30-day trial is available from the Groxis Web site, and a license is US$49.
