This is new to me: Microsoft Research Asia appears to be working on clustered search results a la Vivisimo. I saw this URL: https://rwsm.directtaps.net/ in my referer log which give search results with the familiar clustered tree on the left.
It looks like this has been around for a while, at least since the end of January.
