Spezify — A Fun Visual Search Tool

Search engines come in all shapes and sizes, and some are more fun to use than others. Spezify is a lot of fun because when you type in your search term it bombards you with a screen full of pictures, text, and videos about your term, and it just keeps adding more to the picture all the time. It’s a kaleidoscope of a search list, much more entertaining than a numbered, linear list like you get on Google or Yahoo. You can move around this list quite easily, and if you see something you like you just click on it to get an enlarged version of the picture or text. Videos will play right in the screen, so it’s easy to see if the video is relevant to your search. If you want to visit the site of a particular item on the search list, just click on its URL, and you’ll be there in seconds. I don’t think Spezify is going to replace Google anytime soon, but it’s worth a visit if you want an overview of a search topic.
