Choosing your Destination with Hyperwords


Hyperwords is a very useful Firefox add-on, which makes all the words on a website instantly interactive.

Hyperwords works in a similar way to the code from Answers.com previously reviewed in 2008. However, the advantage of Hyperwords is that you do not have to manually install code on every website where you want to use it.

Once added to Firefox, you can select a word and then choose from multiple suggested reference sites. Easily search for related text, map, image or video information with just a couple of clicks.

Hyperwords works nicely within a Moodle site and you can even post directly to Twitter!! Translation, of the selected text, to a number of languages is also provided.

Yet another reason to switch to Firefox :-)
