Visual search engine Viewzi has been in private beta for quite some time now, but they've just announced they expect to launch to the public this month.
Since it's visual, a wordy blog post just isn't going to do this news justice. So I've created a screenshots for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to leave your reaction in the comments!
Viewzi main search page
Viewzi's search menu offers several options for viewing results
Video search displays results from popular video sites. Some of the videos are played in fast forward right in the results page. In Viewzi, mouseover an individual result to see the title of the video.
Web screenshot results show search results in a cover-flow style. I like this because you can easily see which pages are educational, shopping or parked domains.
Photo view is similar to video view, displaying image search results in several rows.
Simple text view combines results from Yahoo and Google and looks similar to traditional text-based search results.
Four source view displays website screenshot results from Google, Yahoo, Ask, and MSN. To remove one of the sets of results, just click on the search engine name that you do NOT want to see displayed. Mouseover a result for a larger view.
Celebrity Photo View is not just an image search for photos of celebrities. Instead, it's the name for the way the results are displayed, which looks like a photo album or scrap book and features a slick drag and drop feature.
mp3 View shows results of mp3 files related to your search. You can even listen to the files in your browser instead of opening additional applications which can use up valuable memory on your computer.
