Some time back, I posted a little thing I hacked out to let me open un-linked URLs in a new window (in IE). Well, I actually have a few very similar, ummm, things. There are five parts in this ZIP. You can pick and choose which ones you want to use. Here they are:
- ARIN IP WHOIS
- Domain Name WHOIS Lookup (using InterNIC)
- Open Highlighted Link In New Window
- WikiPedia Search
- Define Term (using dictionary.com)
In a nutshell, these each add a new menu item to your right-click menu in IE when you have text selected. Once installed, select some text, right-click, pick the new option. Pretty simple, hey?
Here is the ZIP. Download and use at your own risk. See readme.txt for summary and instructions. These will modify your registry and if you don’t know what that implies, then you probably won’t want to install them.
Update: I’ve since added another “thing”. Read the update post here.
