The Future of Search Engine Results?

Search engines, since their inception, have followed the same basic design.

A user types in his or her search terms, and a set of results are retrieved and shown as a text-based list. While the algorithms that power search engines have gotten much better over time, users still have to read through a text list to see their results.


Searchme is a search engine that changes all this. After you type in a search term, Searchme displays search results as full-page previews. You can then easily flip through the results. This way, you can see if the content is suitable for your search.

Currently, Searchme does have limitations and it is not as powerful as Google. However, as an alternative to search engines of the past and as a possible glimpse of the future of searching, it is worth a look.
