Select-n-Go by Cleeki is Firefox's enhanced alternative to IE8 Accelerator (Activities). Select any text on your screen, and you can preview search results immediately in the same page. Support Google (text, image, ...), YouTube, Maps, Amazon, etc. and you can add your own channels.
The design philosophy of Cleeki is:
1) Minimum annoyance: no change of web page appearance, no unwanted tab switching, no unpleasant popups, etc.
2) Maximum efficiency: minimum operations, seamless connection, easy activation/hiding, etc.
Compared with IE8 activities, Select-n-Go provides better experience in that:
1) The preview page is with richer amount of information and interaction
2) You can customize your own search channel easily
3) Edit the keyword freely
4) And more…
1) Select some text using your mouse and hold it (don't move, and don't release mouse left button) until you see a search menu.
2) Left click a channel icon to preview the result in the same page.
3) Ctrl+left click to search in a new tab, and the active tab is switched to the new tab.
4) Click the middle button to open the search result in a new tab, but stay where you are (no tab switching).
Cleeki contains the function to convert any URL text to a hyperlink:
5) Hold the Shift key, and move your mouse over any URL text (without hyper-link) to turn the URL text into a hyper-link, or
6) In case 5) doesn't work, select any text that containing the URL using the method in Step 1), and select "Go to URL" from the menu to directly open the URL.
Cleeki can also copy pure text (without any format), which is extremely helpful when you want to copy/paste just text content from documents, web pages, or emails. You will never be frustrated to get rid of the annoying format anymore.
