Ask and You Shall See
Nifty little piece of innovation on the search engine ASK!. On the search results page, each link has a binocular icon which, upon rollover, pops up a thumbnail view of the destination page. Even though you can’t read any of the contents, you get to preview the page before clicking. Recent innovations in this space include: Snap previews and Cooliris, a Firefox plugin. While on search, you may want to check out a search engine Accoona. Where you search under: news, business, web.
