Tel-aviv, Israel (PressExposure) February 26, 2009 -- SemantiNet(TM), Ltd. - a pioneer in the development of cutting-edge Semantic technology announces its acclaimed Headup(TM) Semantic Web Firefox addon is available for download as a public beta.
Headup is a new plugin for the Mozilla(R) Firefox(R) Web browser that enables true semantic capabilities for the first time within any Web page. Previously only available as part of a limited, closed beta, headup can be downloaded for free and is available for both the Microsoft(R) Windows(R) and Apple(R) OS X(R) Operating Systems using the new Microsoft Silverlight(R) technology. End-user privacy is fully maintained throughout the discovery and sharing process.
Headup's semantic engine retrieves personalized, meaningful information in real-time about the data that specifically interests individual users. With this information, Headup can seamlessly and contextually 'understand' how dispersed data across the Web is related and connect it in real time, alerting users that additional information of interest exists for them. Headup data is displayed fully in context on the existing page, discreetly underlining words to provide notice that additional, relevant content is available from dozens of popular Web services.
Headup enables the serendipitous discovery of all kinds of new relevant information - ranging from new music & videos discovered by your friends, to new blogs, data and photos that are specifically related to the interests of you and the people in your social networks. Headup also allows newly discovered content to be posted to your favorite sites, including Facebook, Friendfeed, Twitter, Digg and Delicious.
As an example, browsing a music CD on Amazon(R) can now show not just Amazon's information, but also all of this -- all in the same window: - How many of your Facebook(R) friends like this band; - Hear the band's latest music streamed via Seeqpod(TM) - See band pictures on Flickr(R); - Find the best tickets for the concert in your city via Zvents(TM); - How many of your friends are using Twitter(TM) or Friendfeed(TM) to discuss the upcoming concert; - What restaurants near the concert hall are top-rated by Yelp(R); - Use cutting-edge geolocation through Yahoo(R) and its Fire Eagle technology for accurate 'where am I' capabilities; - Other supported services include Digg(R), GMail(TM), Google(R), Yahoo(R) and Wikipedia(TM) -- with many more under development and others not listed here -- visit [http://headup.com/headup-Semantic-web-sources.html] for the full list
