Cool new feature in my blog -- SmarterFox

Yeah, I've added SmarterFox which can be used for searching any word or expression that you'd like to know more about.
So, to bring up this feature just highlight the word(s) that you want and mouse over the highlight.
Now a series of buttons should appear which allow you to do a search in Google, OneRiot, Twitter or do a Google Wiki search. Note that this latter is labelled as a search of Wikipedia which is incorrect. A button to twitter the highlight is also presented although this seems a little strange -- why would you want to twitter a single word? Might have to try this to test what exactly it does. Maybe it RTs the whole article.
Compatible browsers for SmarterFox include Firefox, IE8, Google Chrome and Safari. However, I'm using it in Opera 10 and it's fine.
