Jawoco is a new search engine that could be useful for ELL’s. After you make a query, in addition to the text links, it automatically shows a thumbnail image next to each item. It’s easier for ELL’s to see than in Google, where you have to scroll over each result in order to see a visual preview. Google’s preview is bigger than a thumbnail, of course, but if you scroll over a result in Jawoco, you can also get a much bigger preview.

Of course, the bigger question is if this slight advantage is going to enable Jawoco to make it over the long-term….

As long as it’s around, I’m adding Jawoco to The Best Search Engines For ESL/EFL Learners.
