blinkx, a video search engine, has launched four custom browser "add-ons" for Windows Internet Explorer 8 users.

"As the Web moves increasingly toward video, our goal is to make finding that video as simple, seamless and integrated a process as possible," said Suranga Chandratillake, founder and CEO, blinkx.

The four add-ons are:

blinkx Visual Search: an add-on that makes the blinkx’ video index searchable from the Internet Explorer 8 search bar. Once added to Internet Explorer 8, blinkx instantly displays matching video previews in a drop-down menu as a term is typed into the browser search bar.

blinkx Accelerator: a new way of finding videos on the Web. After highlighting a piece of text on a Web page, users can simply click on the blue Accelerator icon that appears next to the text and the blinkx Accelerator will show video results most closely related to the highlighted text.

blinkx Remote TV Search Slice: a drop-down blinkx Remote that makes it easy to search for any TV show or movie from the Internet Explorer 8 Favorites Bar. The green Web Slice icon in the Command Bar lets a user subscribe to this feature and gain instant access to a blinkx Remote mini-site, which displays every TV show available and the link to watch it in a new tab.

blinkx Remote TV Episode Slice: Available for any show on blinkx Remote and updated in real-time, a drop-down mini-site displays every episode of the series available to watch and even indicates which ones are new.
