[prMac.com] Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - DEVONtechnologies, LLC releases DEVONagent Lite, a free menu extra that lets the user quickly search the web with a single keystroke or click.
The new Lite edition shows up as a menu extra, like its larger sibling DEVONagent Express, and features a search field for quickly sending a query to the selected search engine. Most of the plugins known from the higher editions are available in DEVONagent Lite, too. Unlike its commercial siblings it opens the result page directly in your favorite web browser. With the configurable keyboard hotkey and the menu extra web search is only one key press or click away.
If you don't need the full power of DEVONagent Pro or even just DEVONagent Express this is for you. It's small, it's convenient, and it's free," comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, DEVONtechnologies' President.
Availability and Pricing:
DEVONagent Lite 3.0.3 requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later and will become available for free in the Mac App Store as soon as it has passed Apple's review.
Background: DEVONagent Lite:
DEVONagent Lite puts web search to where it belongs: next to Spotlight into your menu bar. Search all major and many specialized search engines and databases with one click.
Search the web like with spotlight:
DEVONagent Lite adds a web search field to your menu bar. Google, Bing, and many more always at your service. Its global keyboard shortcut saves you even that click. Just click DEVONagent Lite's menu bar icon, or press its keyboard shortcut, and start typing instead of switching to your browser, opening a new window, and clicking the search field first. Hit Return and DEVONagent Lite opens the search results in your default browser.
Use the best engine for the job:
Google & Co. are great for general questions but often it's better to ask the right people who really know. Choose your search engine of choice from the magnifying glass pop-up menu to directly search in developer resources, blogs, dictionaries, directories, discussion lists, legal or medical databases, news, or reference sites such as Wikipedia. Find Facebook profiles, tweets, or images without deviation.
