Yippy (formerly Clusty) is a metasearch engine developed by Vivísimo before Vivisimo was later acquired by IBM and renamed IBM Watson Explorer which offers clusters of results.


Clusty was developed by Vivísimo. Vivísimo was a company built on Web search technology developed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers, much like Lycos was a decade earlier. Clusty added new features and a new interface to the previous Vivisimo clustering web metasearch. Different tabs also offer metasearches for news, jobs (in partnership with Indeed.com), U.S. government info and blogs. Customized tabs allow users to select sources for their own metasearch to create personalized tabs.
