Editors' review

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.

    "Useful and not only 'one more Firefox add-on'"

    April 28, 2009   |   By alexestevam

    Version: Select-n-Go by Cleeki 1.5.9

    Pros

    In a single click of mouse you can get whatever best describe the word you are searching for.

    Cons

    Instruction says "To start, select any text and hold (don't release) the mouse button until you see a popup menu". However, it demands some patience to wait for that menu. Those are precious seconds if you work in front of the computer all day long.

    Summary

    If you are tired of looking around for really useful Firefox tool this one won't disappoint. Among many useless garbage, this one makes a difference.
