Perform Visual Search with SearchMe
Normally when we perform a search on Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, we are presented with a bunch of text links as results and sometimes the pages may not contain the information that we want. SearchMe is search engine that provides users with the screenshot of the Website in the form of search result so you can actually see the Website before clicking on it. Hovering your mouse over the screenshot will also display information about the Website.
When you perform a search in SearchMe, you will be presented with web page Screenshots and you can browse through them like you browse through albums in iTunes. You can also select the List Mode which will display thumbnails on top and list box on bottom. Search can also be performed Category wise. When you write your search term in the box, you will be presented with a list of matching categories and you can also perform the search in context of that category. Search for “Safari” and you will se categories like “ wildlife ”, “ software ” etc and this way you can differentiate between the results easily.
One more good thing about this is that you can create, share and save ‘Stacks’. Stacks are like bookmarks that you can save, share or even embed in your site. There are also preferences that you can customize according to your choice. You can also perform video and image search in the 3d format.
Though i admit it is not Google when compared to the accuracy and relevancy of the search result but it definitely provides you a cool way of searching. It is currently in Beta and I sure hope it improves in the future.
