FAROO & the English version of my diploma thesis abstract.

Since the results of my thesis got a panel on Barcamp Bangalore #4, I thought I should translate & upload the abstract in English as well. Furthermore FAROO is already mentioned in the top 100 list of alternative search engines in july. And at least FAROO is obviously just worth an entry in the English version of Wikipedia.

The aptitude of the different novel and user centered crawling method to generate a decent search engine index will be examined. The innovation in that method is, that the generation of the index will be realized by the users themselves only while surfing and viewing website within a browser.
