Semantifi is an open & free semantic search platform to search structured data on the Web. Unlike Google or Bing, Semantifi can crawl, index and search structured data to show presentation-ready tables and charts in real-time even from very large databases.

Semantifi envisions that millions of such community built Search Apps will power search of structured data or "Deep Web" search and not by current general purpose keyword search engines.
