The FinderFox widget
FinderFox is a simple, unobtrusive widget that you can insert into your websites. It is similar to the “Lookup Word” button on NYTimes.com, but has more features!
- Your readers will be able to tweet a quote with a single click
- Your readers will be able to look up unfamiliar terms quicker.
- You will engage your visitors better by increasing the usability of your site-specific search.
- Your website will stand out and look cooler!
- Because FinderFox loads asynchronously it should not negatively impact your page’s load time.
- Results open in a new window so your visitors will not redirected away from your site.
FinderFox adds a “search bubble” that pops-up when your visitor selects/highlights a part of the text on your website. You can customize the search bubble to include your own site-specific search engine. FinderFox is also available as a Firefox extension.
