One of the most challenging issues in mining information from the World Wide Web is the design of systems that can present the data to the end user by clustering them into meaningful semantic categories. We envision that the analysis of the results of a Web search can significantly take advantage of advanced graph drawing techniques. In this paper we strengthen our point by describing the visual functionalities of WhatsOnWeb. WhatsOnWeb is a meta search clustering engine explicitly designed to make it possible that the user browses the Web by means of drawings of graphs whose nodes represent clusters of coherent data and whose edges describe semantic relationships between pairs of clusters. A prototype of WhatsOnWeb is available at http://whatsonweb.diei.unipg.it/.
