Visual search engines such as Searchme and Viewzi provide searchers with a graphical preview of web sites, video, and images. In its image search update, Yahoo! appears to be taking a page from these visual search engines by offering a preview page when users click on an image.
Yahoo! says the update also includes the following three features:
- A search box with search assistance to let you quickly and easily search for more images.
- More image search results (so you don’t have to hit the back button to see your other options).
- Suggestions based on queries from other users making similar searches.
Here’s are screenshots from the update. Let us know your reaction to the update in the comments!
