Thumbs up Cool tool for IE

Here is a link for a very useful add on tool for Internet Explorer . It a built in Google search tool , you can highlight any text on any web page then right click and 'Search' from the drop down menu, it will open a Google search for the highlighted text in a new window.

Here is another that is really useful , it lets you right click on images in a webpage and Zoom in/out to make the image bigger/smaller.

This tool was written for IE5 and to make it work with IE6 you have to do a bit of editing to the .HTM part of the so

To fix it, use Notepad to open ZOOMIN.HTM (found usually in
and edit it to read both image dimensions before setting any of them:

old contents:
h = parentwin.event.srcElement.height * 2;
parentwin.event.srcElement.height = h;
w = parentwin.event.srcElement.width * 2;
parentwin.event.srcElement.width = w;

new contents (the 3rd line in the fragment above moved up):
h = parentwin.event.srcElement.height * 2;
w = parentwin.event.srcElement.width * 2;
parentwin.event.srcElement.height = h;
parentwin.event.srcElement.width = w;

Do the same for ZOOMOUT.HTM

I have both these tools installed and they really are useful and save a lot of time and key/mouse movement, I'd be lost without 'em .
