Editors' review

WordClick is a handy tool that looks up selected words on Web pages and in e-mails, though we would have liked more search engine options. Without even typing or highlighting a word, this Internet Explorer add-on allows you to hover your mouse pointer over a word and simply click the word to instantly perform a search.

Its interface resembles Windows. It offers settings to select search engines to use and to determine how fast the program will change a hovered-over word into a clickable search link. We like that you can use three different mouse click combinations to launch three different search engines. Although we would have liked a few more popular search engine options, you'll be able to search using Google, MSN Search, Amazon, eBay, and Frazoo. Folks will like the way this free program saves time with instant online lookups.

    "A better way to search!"

    December 12, 2007   |   By TanjaD7

    Version: WordClick 1

    Pros

    WordClick is a great application. A friend told me about it so I downloaded it to check it out. I use it at least 5 times a day, no joke. I hate cutting and pasting and this saves so many steps in terms of surfing the web. It's also fantastic that WordClick recognizes word sets - i was really impressed by that. You can set your search results to Google or whatever you prefer and even the speed so you can really tailor it to your personal needs. I love this application and have told many people about it already.

    "Great application - no more cutting and pasting into Google"

    December 11, 2007   |   By webpest411

    Version: WordClick 1

    Pros

    I stumbled across this application by accident, but have to say that I have fell in love with it...I do a lot of web research and it saves me a ton of time. Rather than having to select, cut and paste into Google - I now just click on the word (or group of words) I am looking to get results for...It has really changed the way I surf...I highly recommend it!

    Cons

    It would be great if there was other features built in - like a toolbar...

    "Neat Idea, but Gets Old Fast"

    May 13, 2007   |   By ParaLegalStar

    Version: WordClick 1

    Pros

    Nice, free little program that could be useful to some - perhaps to someone doing intense research - but not for casual web browsing.

    Cons

    While scrolling down a page of text, every time the pointer lands on ANY word, a big balloon pops up, asking if you want to google that particular word - It can become quite annoying. Fortunately, the removal process is quick and painless.
