An anonymous reader writes: Bluum, a web application launched today, enables users to explore anything they're curious about by simply highlighting a word. A Bluum window displays related wiki, pictures, video, real time news, tweets and more. With Bluum, users can watch YouTube videos, click on links, surf and see what people are tweeting about, all without leaving the page or opening a new tab.
For most people, a few hours of surfing and searching the web can result in multiple open tabs and lots of wasted time bouncing chaotically from site to site. Bluum displays relevant content and media within the one page being viewed, as opposed to traditional Search Engines that deliver individual links and redirect to new pages.
“Bluum brings the whole web to you,” explains Jim Haas, Bluum Co-Creator. “Instead of getting sucked into a wormhole of content and new tabs, Bluum keeps you on the page so you can quickly learn more about something and then get back to what you were reading.”
Bluum also introduces a whole new way to surf the web with its window-in-window browsing feature, which allows users to view two sites at the same time within the same page. For instance, with Bluum you could be watching a Hulu video and pull up live sports scores without leaving the page.
“We're all suffering from Tab-overload,” claims David Littlejohn, Bluum Co-Creator. “With Bluum we want to deliver instant access to more information and relevant content, so people can explore their natural curiosity."
Bluum is a Free Google Chrome Extension. You can learn more and install it at www.Bluumage.com
