I've authored a package of IE addons. Install it, and you get the following choices by right-clicking any selected text in an IE window:

Google Web Search
Google Groups Search
Google News Search
Google Image Search
Dictionary.com Search
Ebay Search
Itunes Search
Launch selected as URL (great for DU cold-links)

The installer is only 357KB, and works with IE6/sp2/XP and lower. Uninstaller is included. If you want it, IM me an email address, or better yet someone can host it somewhere.

The only IE add-in I trust is the Google Toolbar. TANSTAAFL. YMMV.

What is the name of the software?


I don't trust you enough to accept an emailed .exe file.

Did you do that on purpose?!?

I wrote these. Just a few javascripts with the appropriate registry entries.

No spyware.

No crap.

I don't think Google Toolbar lets you do context searches on selected IE text. My addons do. And without sending information anywhere.

Firefox only offers one "web search" context option, from what I can tell.

There's a reason I wrote these for myself.

Apparently, most people haven't looked very hard for it. www.exchangecode.com/spellbound/install.html#header

I don't know what you people have against MSIE.
It's a wonderful program that allows all users, from novice to expert, the ability to surf the web in style, safety and ease.

Cool. Didn't know Opera had that. Can you toggle images on/off like in IE?

Regardless, it looks like Opera is easily the best browser out there, now that I play around with it.
Is looks worth buying to get rid of the ads.

It's slow, it's unsafe, it's ugly, it's crude ... have you ever even looked a Mozilla or Opera? Like having only driven a 1973 Ford Pinto in a city full of Ford Pintos you'll never be able to relate to us '75 GMC Pacer guys if you don't try. No pop-ups, no hi-jacks, no trojans automatically installed for us, faster, more efficient navigation, skins ...



+1 for Opera. I'm playing around with it now. Impressive, to say the least.
