SlimSearch

Author(s):



Everything is hypertext and clickable!

Using several search engines, and via a simple right-click menu, SlimSearch effectively takes any piece of text whatsoever on a Webpage and transforms it into hypertext.

Highlight with the mouse any text in your browser, then right-click to search it on the Web. You can do normal searches, dictionary searches, address searches, Froogle, etc.
Google is extensively used for most of the searches, but other specialized search engines are used too.

By the way, the same idea is now a major new feature in IE8 (Internet Explorer 8), it's called Accelerators. This extension did the same thing years before IE8. :-)

Current searches:
- Google: normal seach, exact phrase, dictionary
- Google Images
- Google News
- Froogle
- Google Finance
- Google Local
- Google Maps
- Google Video
- Google Scholar
- Wolfram Alpha
- eBay
- YouTube
- Urban Dictionary
- Wikipedia
- IMDb (Internet Movie Database)
- Netflix

If you find a non-clickable URL on a page, SlimSearch can help with that too - highlight the URL, right-click, go to SlimSearch and choose Go to this URL.

The focus is on simplicity of utilization: less is more.
