Twurdy is a new search engine that returns results using a color-coded system that rates each result on how easy the text is to read.

I’ve shared my concerns about leveling books, but I tend to think that this kind of system might be useful to English Language Learners who are trying to find information quickly. It could save a lot of time and frustration.

I’m adding it to my website under Search Engines. I’m not quite convinced, though, that it will deserve a spot on my next “The Best” list on search engines.
