hyperwords

July 22, 2008

Hyperwords is the other browser add-on that has very quickly become part of my online life. It may be obvious or even old news to some, but I’m impressed… and hooked. The main idea is that you can highlight any word in a web page and right-click to access a pop-up menu that includes searches on Google, dictionaries, images, translating tools, and more.

The best feature I have found so far is that any online search that you use often can be incorporated into the menu. Just right click in the search box of that page and choose ‘Add to Hyperwords’ to customize your menu. That and the double enter to get your Google search result. There still seem to be a ton of other shortcuts that I’m still discovering…

Thanks Ades for the pic above.
