A new breed of Internet directory is forming. We all have heard the phrase A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words but it is time to up the bar. With GeePix.com, A Picture Is Worth Twenty-Five Hundred Links. Just on the heels of what some consider a phenomenon in Internet history, GeePix grasps the pixel appeal of the Million Dollar Homepage and adds some of the latest technologies available to offer an experience unmatched by common day Internet directories.

GeePix users ask, "How can a single webpage sustain 2500 individual links and still be visually appealing?". As they move through the directory, they are pleasantly reassured by the nature of the site. By using AJAX (asynchronous javascript and xml), GeePix gives users tools for tracking visited links, bookmarking links, and managing their account without a single page refresh. The advantage of this technology is the page can be image centric and feature rich since every action will not require the entire page to reload. Using the new approach of dissecting a site into pixel links gives a visually appealing display for up to 2500 direct website links. The site also houses a massive 1000x1000 high resolution image to further extend the eye candy for the user. Using common day Internet directories, users would have to visit upwards to 100-250 webpages to achieve what GeePix has on one webpage and no one matches GeePix's visual appeal.

A sneak peak into GeePix can be enjoyed at http://www.geepix.com/demo. After a simple login users can track their progress through the topic of horses. Upon returning to GeePix, users can pick right back up where you left off without jumping to page 5, 10, or 50. From a single glance users know what sites they have visited and even which ones they would like to revisit in the form of a bookmark. Each region, designated by a grid overlaying the image, is a single link to an external website relating to the topic of the category and the image. Each link is in a permanent location, giving value and stability to website owners who wish to list their own site in the GeePix directory. Website owners have a choice of 14 primary categories. As each of the categories grow in popularity they will be broken down into subcategories to better focus on their specific topics.

With a perfect balance of new technology, visual appeal and a KISS (Keep It Super Simple) attitude, GeePix is definitely on the watch list of up and comers. With the ability to provide a useful, pleasant environment for web browsing, GeePix will certainly rank among the top destinations to begin a topic based search.
