Searchme.com: New search engine allows you look for websites visually
Search Me is the coolest thing in search that I’ve seen in years. Taking its cue from the most recent versions of iTunes, it displays web pages as if they were record sleeves and then allows you to quickly flick through them as you would a rack of vinyl in a shop. This is so smart because it is an intuitive way to look for things, especially if you know what you are looking for but can’t quite remember where you last saw it. I think we are going to see a lot more of this “natural” form of search in the years to come.
There’s already the recently launched servic Zoomi: a virtual shop that looks and behaves like a bookshop (you browse books held on a shelf). but is really just a front for Amazon. Great, if you genuinely want to browse.
