Todd 221 describes this well. It works like the normal Google search engine in the Search Bar and has the same Google Suggestions, but when you execute the search, it takes you to the heapr site instead of Google. There's not any benefit there unless you need to refine your search--that's where its faster because you get *Results* as you type instead of (or in addition to, if you like) Suggestions. Thus, you save time because you not only don't have to hit the Enter key, you don't have to reselect the Search Box to add/subtract/change search terms. What I'd like to see next is the ability to automatically have the links you click on open in a new tab.
Excellent addon that will, in addition to the previews on mouse hover, display the even larger size images (if there are any) in a popup window if your drag the image)--not something you can do with Firefox's 'View Image' in the context menu (You have to use Amazon's viewer to zoom in on pieces of the image). For one DVD, 'View Image' displayed a 351x500 image of the cover, whereas this addon was able to pull a 899x1280 image. Note that you'll have to add www.amazon.com, www.amazon.de, etc. to your list of exceptions for your pop-up blocker.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2).
Re: onguarde's suggestion, if you do your Google search in quotes, you don't have this problem, though it would be helpful to have an option nonetheless.
When you have multiple Session Manager sessions with duplicate tabs, just open all of them and then run this add-on.
This addon enables you to open links in a new tab via left-click+dragging while:
1) still maintaining the ability to highlight text, which neither All-in-One Gestures nor FireGestures can do.
2) in the Web Search Pro add-on, left-click+dragging text still activates drag-and-drop zones (as of version 22.214.171.124), although the anchor text of a link won't, but if you highlight the anchor text, you can use CTRL+Q to bring up Quick Type Search and it will automatically appear there.
