Windows 7: Chrome features in Firefox

Chrome features in Firefox

Google Chrome has a neat little feature where highlighting text spawns a popup, allowing you a quick launch to Google search, and Wikipedia relating to what you highlighted.




Anyone know how I can do this in Firefox?

Yes. It's called FasterFox.

If you go to tools>addons>get addons you'll get to an FF webpage full of addons.
You just find it and click install.

There are currently many more addons for Firefox than Chrome, though that's changing rapidly.

Hope this helps, John

Had to go with FastestFox, as FasterFox isn't compatible with 3.5.7.

But I did get what I wanted, so thanks.

Actually, no add-on required for the Google search part. As long as Google is your default search engine, you can highlight some text, right click, and one of the resulting menu options is "Search Google for <highlighted text>" Don't know of of way to do the same for Wikipedia, however.
