Like Twerq, briefli builds on Google's search engine, adding a layer of functionality. briefli has taken the idea of turning Google into the new Napster, and generalized it to searching open directories for not just MP3s, but videos, documents, and Bittorrent files. While a Google power user who's familiar with advanced search operators could, more or less, easily replicate briefli's functionality, it saves a lot of time to use briefli's UI.
The UI displays the files within each directory on the results page so it's easy to right-click and save instead of having to hunt through several directory listings for the right files.
