Google’s New Viewer

Search engine Google’s latest innovation is The Google Viewer, which displays the pages found as a result of your search as a continuous scrolling slide show. This lets you view search results without using a keyboard or mouse. A control bar lets you adjust the speed or stop the display altogether. A short description of each page accompanies its slide. Not the fastest way to scroll through search results, but maybe the coolest.

Another search site that already offered something similar is Wisenut, which features what it calls Sneak-A-Peak. When you search, each listed result includes the Sneak-A-Peak button. Click it and the listed site appears in a small window directly on the search results page, eliminating the need to repeatedly hit your browser’s Back button as you view results.
