Oolone is a new visual search engine that displays results as web previews instead of text, offering a nice option for efficient and intuitive searching. An oolone search displays the top four results in a grid that allows uses to scroll over the images to get a closer look at the site before actually selecting it. Designed to be a quicker and more efficient way to search, it speaks to the idea that that sometimes an image is the best answer to a question.
