The first web search engine made in Cuba was presented on Thursday by Cuban technicians from the National Office for Technical Information at the 12th International Convention and Exposition Forum INFORMATICA 2007, in Havana.
The search engine, 2x3 (two by three), constitutes a valuable tool to search for Cuban contents on the Internet, explained Roberto del Puerto, head of the Informatization of Cuban Society Office.
At this moment, the website is only in Beta format (non-definitive), said Leandro Silva, main author of the search engine, which has already indexed 150,000 Cuban webpages.
All the electronic addresses corresponding to http://www.dominium.cu, independent of their possessors and their location in web servers were revised.
The search engine was developed 90 percent in Cuban national territory.
The website is provisionally at http://www.infosoc.cu buscador, and revises those Cuban websites with the greatest level of updating, such as news media.
It permits searches for images, multimedia contents and media.
