Snapify – Search Selected Text On Popular Sites Without Leaving Tab

Ever come across a term so unique or a topic so vast that you had to Google it, look it up on Wikipedia, and see if there are any instructional videos on YouTube related to it? The fact is that these sites are a primary source of information on just about anything and everything and when researching a topic we inadvertently turn to them. Snapify is a Chrome extension that lets you search YouTube, Wikipedia, Google, Google Maps, Picasa and Twitter for any term that you select on a web page. The search results appear in a floating window in the same tab.


To search text, select it and a small button to Snap it! will appear right next to the selected text. Clicking the button will launch the extension’s window in the browser. Icons on the left of the window can be used to see results from the different sites. The floating window can be moved anywhere in the tab.
