Until recently, the network was only available through the Vine mobile app, but the service has now launched a website that allows browsing through a desktop computer. The new website (vine.co) also features enhanced search functions that weren't previously available, allowing the user to browse the entire network for specific videos, all without having to register.
The user can search by not just by video title, but by location, user name or tag. The site has also divided its content into "channels" that are very specific, such as animals, places, people, trending, most popular, and more.
The one thing that you can't do from the site is upload a video, which is still reserved for the mobile app.
Vine can be an interesting tool for an artist or band, enabling brief video snippets of shows, behind-the-scenes, back stage, rehearsals, studio recording, and more. Some find that Instagram has more features, but Vine's proponents say that it's simpler to use.
