AOL Search, powered by Google, now offers a FullView panel that offers information related to your search such as editorial content, images, video, audio, news, or shopping. The panel fills the right side of the search results when you type in specific keywords. For instance, typing in Google will bring up a stock quote, chart, and news along with web search results.
Whereas, typing in Hawaii brings up videos, images and Inside AOL links.
It's an interesting experiment in anticipatory search, and somewhat reminiscent of A9's search panes (before the recent facelift) where searching across the web, images, and reference materials could be done simultaneously.
