MSN Thumbnails

By Deane Barker on July 12, 2003

MSN’s Search will now show you a thumbnail of the sites for which it returns hits. (You can tell it to stop, if you like.)

  1. I found in another article that Google tried this once, then pulled it:

    ” Sometimes, that’s how the company realizes that it has a bad idea on its hands. That was the case when it offered broadband customers a thumbnail picture of each Web site with its search results. Of those who got the thumbnails, 5 percent of Google users went to the preferences page and turned off the feature. That’s a pretty big thumbs-down, considering that typically only 1 percent or 2 percent of people ever even view the Google preferences page.”
