What this is for?
I have developed this extension for my own needs and I am now sharing this with whoever wants.
It is intended to those developers or semi-developers who write scripts to make their life easier.
By itself this extension does not do anything, but with the appropriate batch, vbs or other script of all kinds, it can do everything.
I made this extension downloadable for all the platforms, although I have tested it mostly under Windows and a little with Linux.
Also I wrote a RunWith Companion (windows), which is a menu sample with items such "Map this address with Google" or "Display this Quote symbol with Yahoo Finance" etc. It is available via the RunWith homepage.
