Google Fast Flip: Will you use it?

I have a theory on features like Fast Flip -- even though they look terrific, they really aren't all that useful. You may remember an article I wrote about another Google Labs experiment too -- Google Image Swirl -- which I believe has the same problem.

I have a theory on features like Fast Flip -- even though they look terrific, they really aren't all that useful. You may remember an article I wrote about another Google Labs experiment too -- Google Image Swirl -- which I believe has the same problem.

Fast Flip is a new way of browsing stories that you may want to read -- it's very visual. You can choose a category, then scroll horizontally to "flip through" articles. The theory is that you should be able to spot an article that you want to read based on how it looks.

If you haven't tried the feature yet, head over to Google News, and scroll to the very bottom. Give it a try, then come back and complete this poll:
