Amazing in how it changes the web Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As someone who has used the Web since before it had graphics on it, I think that Hyperwords is perhaps the most useful browser addon I've used. It makes selecting text and right-clicking it do infinitely more than "copy" it. With a click you can copy it as plain text as you normally would by clicking "copy", or copy the link the text points to (if it's a link), or search for the text in your choice of search engines, or translate it, or look it up in references....and other stuff I must be forgetting.

Of course which of those items and in what order they appear on the right-click menu is configurable, and you can add new search engines and other resources for it to use so long as they adhere to any sort of standard web search interface, which is just about anything.

I've installed Hyperwords/Liquid Information on many friends, relatives and co-workers computers since it's first pre-public release, and they've almost universally been amazed at how much more useful and easy to use it makes the Web.

In my mind a truly revolutionary addon to web browsers as we have known them since Mosaic. A Must Have!

My Favorite Add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

With Liquid Information I was able to consolidate over half a dozen tools I frequently use and delete several old Extensions. This significantly decreased my load and performance times. This Extension has everything! it is also highly customizable and in milliseconds I have access to reference, search, copy tools, shopping, translation...the list goes on and on. Not one aspect is inferior to a standalone extension making many other tools truly obsolete.
Also on a recent update I had a small issue and sent a contact email and it was replied to in less than an hour...an unheard of customer service experience for an extension. FIVE STARS!!!

Version 9.1 breaks menu bar in FF8.0.1 on mac Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I had to update to v.9.1 since FF8.0.1 (using macos 10.6.8) and experienced issues almost immediately. Firefox' top menu bar stop functionning properly i.e drop-down menus do not work any more. Uninstalled the extension and FF menu bar works again. I've been using this very valuable extension for a long time with no issue in the previous versions.
Best regards.

Menu bar

Hi, I am so sorry to hear that. Please email me directly at frode@liquid.info and tell me if you get any messages in the Error Console (go to the Tools menu, then Web Developer to find it) and that will help us track this down. I haven't heard of this particular bug yet but I'm sure we can fix it for you.

great but problem with google docs Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Have used this for a long time and find it indispensable. However the last version has made Google Docs unusable. A window constantly pops up asking me if I want to use Hyperwords in Google docs - already taken care of in options. No matter what I click on, the window reappears as soon as I try to do anything on that page.

Google Docs

Hi. I'm sorry about this. Please uninstall Liquid, then restart and install again, from www.liquid.info. The problem is that your settings are not saved of course, but this should solve the problem.

Wonderful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This thing does so much you could spend many hours tailoring every option to your needs. My needs happen to be modest: I normally use only Search, Translate, and Convert. LI allows me to see only those three functions in the popup menu, giving it a nice streamlined, minimalistic look.

Search is especially appreciated. A swipe of the mouse, two quick mouse clicks, and the results from my search engine of choice are right there.

Conversions of distance, currency, etc., are normally pretty laborious since they involve a trip to one or more specialized websites, but LI's drill-down Convert menu gives you anything you need in a few seconds.

In a nutshell: when a new version of Firefox disables 75% of my add-ons due to incompatibility, this is the one that hurts the most to lose.

Liquid Information is a superlative efficiency tool, which I use everyday in my editing and research work. With many features, I can instantaneously get all the meanings from the words I work with. Brilliant interaction with knowledge and culture, at a click of the mouse! Unobtrusive, good-looking add-on, with literally on-the-spot service provided by the developers.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the most useful addons I've found, use it everyday. So intuitive yet easily customizible. Excellent convert feature for currency, etc. and so easy to cross-check items when browsing [wikipedia or maps].

Best of all is the support, any problems and the developers reply with astonishing speed, if only some paid programs were this good. BRILLIANT!

Outstanding add-on, with superior support from developer. Initial issues with integrating LiquidInfo into existing Hyperwords (surprise on the name change and a consistency issue as mentioned by others) but the final product is well worth the effort and I find the support unprecedented. An outstanding effort by a developer with obvious pride in his work.

"8.2" Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"8.2" The best version so far to date. Please try not to $#@%& this up, I've disabled the 'automatic update function' for this add-on & will only update it in regards to compatibility. A definitely "must-have" add-on for every Firefox user. Thanks!

In The Last Couple Of Months, There Are, At Least, 2 Different Versions Both Called '9.0'.

Why ?

Thank You.

9.0

Hi, we have had problems getting the 9 version approved by Mozilla reviewers and it's getting harder. Even today we uploaded a new version since the last one we submitted threw up a lot of errors we could not previously see. I'm sorry about this.

Brain to Fingers Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hyperwords - so much a part of my day-to-day work that I barely think about it. It's a nearly automatic extension of brain-to-fingers. If you don't yet have it, get it.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the most useful add-ons ever. Works great for both power users and newbies. The most amazing is not only the usefulness and quick updates to follow up with the changes on Firefox, they also run a responsive help desk that works above any expectations. Wow. 10/10.

Using it with Firefox v5 now. As always happy with this great tool !!

Only one problem now:

when choosing " Copy => to Notepad ", Hyperwords will not insert the correct SnipUrl but instead insert a 'null' in the Notepad document.

That always used to work perfect.

A (new) bug - or a ( to be solved) 'flaw' with Firefox v5?

For the rest: one of the best productivity tools ever !!

We'll look into that bug. Sorry!

Top marks for a great tool, and for responsiveness Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has got to be one of the most useful add-ons for FF. It makes searching, referencing, translation, etc., extremely easy within the page you're reading. It has become such an essential (and addictive) tool to the extent that I resisted upgrading to Firefox 5.0 because this was one of the add-ons that was incompatible. Luckily I thought of emailing the developer, and got an instant response pointing me to a work around. Full marks!

100-Stars for Excelence (I'm not a bot -- I mean it) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't say enough about this ad-on. It has become my basic search tool and I go into withdrawals without it. FireFox-5 has currently disabled it; however, I am so addicted to it that I downloaded Wyzo (another Mozilla browser) so that I can continue using it. If I could give it 10-stars I would.

I give 5 stars, although Hw8.2 suxx in FF5macOSX.5.8 because:
— In Hyperwords Preferences I set some Prefs and then click OK in the bottom right corner, but the Pref window won't close; instead: the rainbow ball of death spins around endlessly so that I have to quit FF5!
— In "Hw> Prefs> Layout" the up/down arrow buttons can move the layout items, but whenever an item is moved over a folder item, Hw asks wether I want to put it in the folder ... evil!
— If there can be a FF5 version on hyperwords.net, so why not here??? Suxx cog.

Hyperwords - "I highly recommend it for everyone"

It quickly becomes an essential tool - without it the whole experience seems awkward, unintuitive and laborious...
