All you need is KwiClick, a Firefox add-on (no such luck if you’re using IE, Chrome or any other browser). Normally you’ll have to leave your browser or tab window when wanting to search Google, Wikipedia, YouTube, Flickr or any other search site; KwiClick allows you to stay where you are.

After installing KwiClick, you’ll achieve that by opening a small floating Firefox window in the bottom right corner of the screen – by clicking on the KwiClick icon in your navigation toolbar (or by selecting any text on a web page, right clicking, and selecting “KwiClick search”). Type your search term into the box at the top of that window, click on any of the icons at the bottom representing your search platforms (Google, Wikipedia, Flickr, etc) and your search results will appear.

The window is resizable and can be dragged anywhere on the screen; you can pin it to make it stay on top of all other windows  if your doing something like writing an email while wanting to wtach the YouTube clip you just searched for. If you don’t pin it, it will fade away when you click on the browser window behind your small KwiClick window.

KwiClick supports the following search providers: Google, YouTube, Wikipedia, Twitter, FriendFeed, Flickr, Google Maps, Yahoo, Windows Live, Veoh, Vimeo, Live Video, Howcast, Viddler, Technorati, Amazon.com and Delicious.

Overall: great way of searching! For more ideas on what KwiClick can do check out the video below (although you might have to slow it down a bit😉 ).
