Mountain View-based TheFind, which launched last fall, is trying to deliver better shopping search results to users, featuring the items they most want to buy.
Nextag, Shopzilla and other shopping search engines are already big in this space.

Glimpse launched in April, with an undisclosed amount of funding from Greylock Partners and Redpoint Ventures.
