Ask Jeeves announced the release of several new features that they say will, "make it faster, easier and more intuitive for users to find information online. The new features build on Ask Jeeves' strategy to take searchers beyond "ten blue links" and directly to the most relevant results."

They've got some cool features in their arsenal, including famous people search, white pages search, popular searches, movies search, weather search, and my personal favorite, the binoculars site preview. The binocular preview lets you see a small screenshot of the site by simply mousing over the binoculars by the listing. This can save lot of time clicking back and forth to find what you're looking for.
