Ask.com, originally known as Ask Jeeves, is a search engine that has been around since 1996. Unlike other search engines, Ask.com originally had a unique feature that allowed users to ask questions in natural language and receive answers in the form of web links. This feature was powered by a virtual assistant named "Jeeves," who was portrayed as a butler dressed in a tuxedo. In 2006, Ask.com underwent a major redesign and rebranding effort that removed Jeeves and focused on a more traditional search engine interface. However, the company still prides itself on its ability to provide answers to specific questions through its "Ask the Community" feature, where users can ask questions that are answered by other users. Ask.com also offers a range of other features, including image and video search, as well as a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. Despite facing fierce competition from other search engines like Google and Bing, Ask.com continues to attract a dedicated user base due to its unique features and user-friendly interface.
