Another eye-popping rise for blinkx

LONDON (SHARECAST) - Video search engine firm blinkx has launched four add-on modules for the popular Internet Explorer 8 web browser.

The four modules are called Visual Search, Accelerator, Remote TV Search Slice, Remote TV Episode Slice.

Visual Search and the blinkx Accelerator offer users immediate, integrated access to blinkx’s library of more than 35m hours of video, conveniently built into the browser, while two distinct blinkx Remote Web Slices give instant access to top shows and movies from the Favorites [sic] bar of Internet Explorer 8.

“Together or separately, these four add-ons will change the way users interact with, their Internet Explorer 8 browser and video on the Web,” claimed Suranga Chandratillake, founder and Chief executive officer of blinkx.

The shares hit a new 52 week on the news, with the shares having tripled in value over the last month after the company released strong results on 19 May.
