Searchme, etc.

Via PC Mag.com, word of a handy visual search engine SearchMe. Enter the search term, and you can scroll horizontally through captures of web pages with the search term. The page uses Apple's Cover Flow interface to display results.

There's another site, Viewzi, which is a metasearch engine (meaning, it recovers results from multiple engines) and displays them in any of several different formats. Here are a few examples (click for larger screen captures):

There are actually many more viewing options besides these; some are suited for searches of iTunes, etc.

Another recommended site was Howcast.com, which includes detailed video instructions of how to do various things. Howcast includes some absurd topics, like "How to write truly tasteless wedding vows," so caveat emptor.
