really impressed with Activewords’ “Knowledge Access” application

I’ve been getting deeper into Activewords over the last couple of weeks, figuring out new ways to make it hum, and have just installed their “Knowledge Access” application. Very funky stuff: now if I select any word in any application and kit my Activewords F8 ‘trigger key” it will automatically perform a Google search on the string for me. I thought I had my searching totally optimized by using MyIE2’s abbreviated search strings, but this means only having to hit a single key! Buzz Bruggeman has kindly offered to take me through an interactive tour of how he uses it when I get to the US this week and I can’t wait. It’s one of the coolest end-user applications (the other being Taskline) I’ve played with in a long time.
