    Hello all,

    I recently downloaded Quicksilver. Fantastic program! I'm looking for one similar that offers a quick-launch function and a wide option of search capabilities.

    For example, I would activate the program by hotkey (like Quicksilver), then search a word/phrase (like "biology," "Africa," "bill of rights," etc.) The program would then give a definition, synonyms, wikipedia entries, entries, etc. based on that term.

    Does anyone know of such a program? If not, what would it take to program one?

    I know there are widgets that do similar tasks, but not one that is collective/expansive, nor one as quick as an application like Quicksilver.



    Edit: I was thinking of a program similar to InfoPlease, without the ads and clunky design.

    What about just tying it to the Mac's It's got dictionary, thesaurus, and Wikipedia all right in one.
