Coverflow has a child called SearchMe

A came across another new search engine today called SearchMe.com. When I first went to the site I had a strong flash back to the early stage of Snap.com when you are presented with a simple search field and visual search results. It is different from Snap.com as the when you start to type into the simple search you get a line of icons that appear beneath the form so you can narrow the search down by relevant categories. The search results are then presented in an interface that is nearly identical to Apple’s Coverflow that was first introduced in iTunes before making it’s way on to OS X and the iPhone. The strong similarities aside, it is an effective way to present the results especially for me who so often is looking for a specific site that I will recognize visually or is drawn to certain visual site design styles. The site is still in Beta so it will be interesting so see what changes before it goes final
