Aim of this work is to present a new human computer interface for Web search engines. Despite the noteworthy improvements introduced in the Web search engines, their human interface still remain surprisingly based on a textual sorted list. The position of a site in this list expresses its distance from the user's query. The authors propose a graphical user interface for search engines based on the geomorphologic metaphor. This interface makes user aware of the semantic distribution of the Web sites retrieved by the search engine. The proposed interface is implemented as a browser plug-in and it is able to work with all the modern search engines.
