Firefox 3.0 App of the Day: Juice 0.1

This 463KB piece of software from Linkool Labs is by all means one of the most useful Firefox add-ons that I have come by in some time. For the passionate internet surfer that is constantly on the lookout for more information, it is vital that access to said information is done in a prompt and swift manner. The days of using just one search engine have seen their peek, and the simple truth of the matter is that your search engine needs a helping boost.

Here is how Juice 0.1.1 works. After you have finished downloading and installing it, you will notice an orange icon in your Firefox 3.0 browser – that is the turn on/turn off switch for the Juice app. When you turn it on, a collapsible sidebar will appear. Let’s say that you are browsing the web, reading an article about software, and you stumble upon an intriguing piece of information – simply highlight the words that caught your eye, and drag and drop the text onto Juice. The application will proceed to search for relevant data related to the query you just entered. The same action can be performed with pictures and videos, meaning that it is not restricted to text search only.

If you drag and drop a video for example onto the Juice sidebar, that video will be stored for future viewing. The next time you want to watch that particular video, you can do so directly from the Juice sidebar – Juice will play back the video while you are free to browse the web as you see fit.

The only thing I found wrong with this piece of software is that it is still in its incipient Beta phase. Other than that, it is a handy add-on that I will definitely keep using in my Firefox 3 browser.

Linkool Labs has been on the market for three years now; the company was founded by Silicon Valley investors back in 2005. Currently its main offices are based in the capital city of China, Beijing. The Juice add-on, the latest version of which being v. 0.1.1 Beta, is the first software product that Linkool Labs has put out.
