    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Powered by Yahoo! search technology, the Search Toolbar leverages Viewpoint's existing visual technology to create a toolbar that displays results with a visual representation that is unlike other toolbars.

    Once users perform a search, at the top of the browser window, just above the results page, a series of thumbnail images are displayed that show the landing pages of each of the search results. Eight or so visual results are displayed at the top of the page, and users scroll across to view the rest of the search results appearing in thumbnail format.

    As users mouse over the icons, they zoom in and out in the same fashion as the Mac OS X. The search results are also displayed in the normal text style directly below the visual results.

    Because the thumbnails contain the actual landing pages of each search result, users can tell immediately if the site they are mousing over is a content-rich site or just a keyword spammed site filled with hundreds of links or ads. - Source http://www.mediapost.com/dtls_dsp_news.cfm?newsId=267182

    BTW they are against "spyware"

    Just reported they pop huge Ads on ABW and like all FREEBEE toolbars are laden with contextual advertising underware.
