If you’re using Internet Explorer 8 (Beta 2) like me, you will love accelarators. Basically, accelarators allow a user to “use” an online service from any other page using only the mouse. For example, since I read a lot of blogs I usually encounter foreign or high-falutin words. Prior to IE 8, what I usually do is copy the word, do a “define” search in Google or use dictionary.com.That’s a lot of work. With accelarators, I can just highlight the word > right-click and chose “Define with Encarta”. It will automatically pops up another tab with the definition of the word, cool and easy right?
What’s even cooler is there are so many accelarator providers out there. You can check them out here.
