Tools: oScope Visual Search

If you spend a lot of time trying to find images or videos on the Internet this tools might help.

oScope – a visual search tool – allows you to search Flickr, eBay, YouTube and Amazon. The creators have promised to add more sites in the future. The photos, books, videos, or eBay items found are displayed with small images (can be zoomed) plus additional information. You can also watch found videos directly inside the search interface or open the original site.

The interface can be customized to your preferences from background color to the size of images shown for each item found. Results as well can be organized in various ways from common thumbnail grids or piles to result lists. Watch the intro video accessible from the [About] menu in the search interface. And you can drag items your interested in into a Favorites folder for later review.

Definitely a better way to search than many other tools around…
