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.
