It’s the little things…

Perusing my referrer list, I saw hits from a search engine called WiseNut. Never heard of it before. So, I took a peek.

It’s nothing too spectacular, but it has this neat little “take a peek” feature. When you get your list of results, you can click on “take a peek,” and a little square preview area below the entry will show you the site. No popups. No leaving the window for another one.

Simple, but cool.

Update: Bah! The site won’t work in anything but IE. No warnings. Just “Not IE? Go away!”

    Google are developing something a little similar with their Google viewer.

    That’s really cool, but it’s kinda like overkill compared to this simple little window thing at WiseNut.

    Yeah, WiseNut manages to offer a little more and yet it’s still understated compared to the Google offering, not something I expected to say. That said I’ve finally worked out why I couldn’t compare sooner, WiseNut only seems to work properly in IE 🙁

    Maybe if they get it working for the rest of us folk they’ll have more appeal.

    How lame is that?? I never noticed. It just refuses to even load in Mozilla. “Hey, you’re not running IE. No soup for you!”

    I take back the bulk of my praise.
