Cleeki's Select-n-Go add-on for Firefox is one of many extensions that attempts to solve the problem of looking up information engendered from the content of a Web page, without leaving your current tab. Highlight a word on a Web page to see a tiny blue button pop out below (if the word is on Wikipedia, you'll see a small Wikipedia logo float above.) Click the blue button to open a menu stuffed with more icons that will initiate a search for the word when you click them--including Wikipedia, Google, Yahoo, The Free Dictionary, and Amazon. Not only do the results show up in a compact window that pops up on your screen, you'll also be able to bookmark the page, start a blog post, or share it through e-mail, IM, and various social networking services, like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and FriendFeed. We just wish we didn't have to log into each account in order to use them from Cleeki.
As a bonus, if you highlight a hyperlink, a similar button hovers below. Click it and you'll be able to preview the Web page without committing to opening a new tab.
Just about everything in Select-n-Go is customizable, from the number of active search channels you've got, to the color of the results window. Don't like having to press the button to see your search choices? No problem--you can set the menu to appear every time you highlight a word. The app's plush feature set and unobtrusive interface make it a shoo-in for those who frequently launch spin-off searches while browsing the Web.
Cleeki can capture keywords anywhere on a screen with as simple as one click, search/share/publish it on the Internet, and preview results immediately. No need to switch programs or web pages. Cleeki saves your inputs 10 or even more times, and accelerates your Internet dramatically. Cleeki comes with client software, IE and Firefox add-ons. Support Google, YouTube, Maps, Facebook, Email, Blogger, etc. and you can add your own channels.
