2 cool tools to enhance web research

by on
in Office Technology

Anyone who does research on the web is familiar with this routine: Point, click, wait. Point, click, wait.

But if you use the browser Firefox (available free at mozilla.com), you can tap into two amazing tools that make online research easier and faster.

Both tools are add-ons, which are little freebies available through the Firefox web site. They’re easy to add and use:

1. Cooliris allows you to see a web page without clicking on its link and waiting for the new page to appear.

Simply let your mouse float over the link until a small icon appears. Click on the icon, and a preview window immediately appears that looks exactly as it would if you’d gone to the page.

While you’re looking at the preview, you can resize it, scroll up and down, e-mail the page link for future reference or increase the font size for readability.

2. Clipmarks works like a clipping service, letting you grab pieces of a web page to store or send on to someone else.

It’s an easy-to-use shortcut (easier than manually copying and pasting clips) and useful when you want to conserve paper by printing only what you need.

Bonus tip: A “Search Engine Manager” comes with Firefox and makes it easy to quickly add, remove and reorder your search engines in the Search bar. Example: You might make GoodSearch your default search engine, then Google, then Yahoo! Firefox also will detect when a web site has an installable search engine and install it for you.
