myQuickSearch - Google & Co. at your fingertips - always!
I always find myself peeved when just writing an article or coding an new app and I only want to quick search something. Just a word, a code snippet, a Wikipedia-entry… I always have to hide, minimize or order back the current window, open Safari, select the search field before I can start to search. After that I have to order the old window to front, maximize it etc. - in that time, I could have been done with the search and back at coding or writing. So I’ve written a small and very simple but nifty tool for the Menu bar that solves this needless pain in my neck and maybe you’ll love it as much as I do…
Not with me, Google
In the latest version I’ve also added a new ‘Not with me, Google’ function.
If enabled myQuickSearch will randomly send search requests (to Google or to your custom search engine) with randomly picked search queries from a customizable list, so that your user profile will not be that accurate, as they assume it is.
You can enable this function in the Preferences.
