Ask Jeeves has added some brand new features to its search engine. Most notably the “Binoculars” thumbnail screenshots and the “Smart Search” result box.
The Binoculars enable searchers to see what a website looks like without having to visit the site. By hovering your mouse over the binoculars icon, a small thumbnail of the website appears.
The Smart Search is a special result box that shows up for the top search terms. According to CBS Marketwatch, “if a user were to type “Shrek 2″ in the search box, the top result would be a big, banner-like box that has a picture of the movie, and links to reviews and the trailer.”
