There is an add-on for firefox and flock browsers called Hyperwords.

It is a very neat little add-on.
hyperwords.net...


It makes every word online "interactive"

When you highlight a word or words, it brings up a list of several options to choose from.
Including, but not limited to; searches, references, copying and language translation.

Here is the wiki link about the add-on
en.wikipedia.org...


Enjoy people

You really shouldn't use IE... very "buggy" and not very good at all.

Get firefox dude....and then get hyperwords... it's awesome.
You can still keep IE in case you don't like mozilla.

I haven't used IE for about 5 years....

Download here.

www.mozilla.com...


So many add ons too, including adblock, news feed, earthquake alert and many, many more. very easy to install too.

I'm only yanking your chain mate.

I just don't like IE...haven't used it for years....not very "safe".

Got a bad rep a few years ago and many people switched to MF...me included.

Never looked back

Its all good. A lot of people feel that way.
Nothing wrong with switching to something your happier with.

Your add on to MF looks pretty cool.

It almost brought it up to date with IE.
Thats a joke btw.

If i had shares in MF..... I'd be annoyed


I'm joking...

I like to think that IE is like the VHS compared to MF's Blu-ray


Also a joke
