AlltheWeb drops banner ads, adds URL tool

Search site introduced a new design today that eliminates banner ads and offers a gallery of skins so users can customize its look.

Along with new new design comes a new tool, URL Investigator. Type a URL in the search box and obtain detailed information about the site — who owns the domain, what language the site is written in, its subdomains and size, the date it was last updated, and a link to see how the site looked in the past.
