Quickly Copy, Paste, And Search For Text With Liquid

OS X Only: Working on a research project usually involves selecting and moving text between a variety of applications. If you’re a keyboard jockey that knows all the shortcuts and is used to adeptly switching between multiple apps, this might not be too much of a hassle.

Yet, if you’re not technorati and you just want to get your work done as quickly as possible, you may benefit from the increased speed that Liquid can offer.

Liquid is a launcher-type application that can greatly increase the speed at which you do a variety of research-related tasks. It can help you transfer text between applications, search, translate, and more.

To get started, highlight some text, and hit Command+@ to load the text into Liquid. Then you can select any other command to translate the text, run a search on Wikipedia or Google, or perform a variety of other tasks. Basically, it offers you a fast, easy way to search for strings of text without removing your hands from the keyboard.

To get a better idea of how the application works and what it can do for you, check out the developer’s demo video posted above.
