Captain Caveman’s Web Search Pro September 30, 2010

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Publishing Tools, Toys.

I’m a Firefox user because I surf the web a little too much.  Firefox has nifty little extensions to make surfing vastly more complex and time-consuming…wait, that didn’t come out right (true, but not right).  One of these is a feature that I am just beginning to appreciate, Captain Caveman’s Web Search Pro.  It allows you to highlight a word or phrase in Firefox and right-click on it to search in a bunch of different websites and search engines.  I use it to find destinations on Google Maps, toys on Amazon.com, books in the San Francisco Public Library, TV shows on Hulu, movies on NetFlix (or the Internet Movie Database) and illegal downloads on Filestube (kidding.  I could, though).  If the list of several thousand search engines he has doesn’t cover your site of interest, check back in a few weeks—more are being added constantly.
