About this Add-on
One of the most useful features provided by Search Cloudlet is Tag Cloud for search results. Now there is no need to look through results list to understand what it's all about. Tag Cloud will show you all the keywords relevant to your search results. And you can easily narrow your search by clicking keywords on the cloud and adding/removing them to/from your query. It's very simple!
Search Cloudlet offers you to experience Hyperlinks 2.0: click a left part of a tag link to add this tag to your query, click a right part of the tag link to remove it from your query.
Site Cloud view suggests sites which contain the most relevant information about your search subject. The most important websites are shown with bigger font. To narrow your search to a specific web-site or exclude this site from the search - just click it and it will be added to (or removed from) your query.
If you often use Google or Yahoo to search through news or blogs, then Search Cloudlet is exactly what you need. For News search there is Source Cloud, that can help you determine the key publishers. For Blogs search there is also Author Cloud view. You can use these context-sensitive clouds to narrow your search the same way you would do it with tag clouds.
Search Cloudlet offers full organic integration of cloud-based navigation into all Twitter functionality. After installing Search Cloudlet, users get tag clouds inserted into their Twitter home-pages, search pages, profile pages, favorites and even into public timeline. Also, on top of traditional simple tag clouds, Cloudlet adds various context-sensitive clouds, such as Author Clouds, Recipient Clouds and Hashtag Clouds.
If you want to work some time with classical Google / Yahoo / Twitter results list without clouds - just click the "Off" button. You can bring back your clouds anytime you want - simply click Tags, Sites or any other button on the Cloudlet's panel.
