Today's Cool Site...
Spice up your Internet searches
Google is like an old friend, tried and true. When you need to find something online, it's probably your first stop.
I'm a big fan of Google and all of its free services. But, sometimes, I like to shake things up a little bit.
So, I've been using searchme for a few days. It probably won't replace Google in my book. But, it does offer some really cool features.
When you perform a search, you'll get your list of results a là Google. But, you also get thumbnails at the top of the page.
The thumbnails are snapshots of matching pages. You can flip through the thumbnails. If you see something that interests you, click the thumbnail. You'll be taken to that page.
This may seem gimmicky at first. But you'll soon see how handy it is. You can see what you're getting before you click. You can also narrow your results by category.
To get more out of searchme, expand the thumbnail pane. Just click and drag the arrow beneath the thumbnails.You should also check out the stacks feature. What are stacks? I won't ruin the surprise for you. You'll have to see for yourself!
