I use Protopage as my web page and branch off from there
a free, 68k program, to prevent myself from killing the Protopage page as it is my main starting point each session.
I also use DKMY to prevent myself from accidentally killing and having to reload the main program I am working with such as Word, Photoshop, etc.
As I mentioned before, I find that when doing serious research, I can get much better and faster results by doing a Amazon search, and reading customer reviews,
than I do by wading though the ads, the personal data collection, and the "Google Cooked" and "Google Bombed" Google searches.
Also Yandex is a much better search engine than Google.
Faster, more honest hits and headers, no personal data collection, etc.
I use the freeware "SelectToSurf" program to: "Select plaintext in any program and hit the hotkey (ctrl+space) ; If the text looks like a url or website name it will be opened. ; otherwise a google search will be conducted with the phrase. ; urls will be cleaned of unnesc. punctuation and split-lines will be merged."
I must mention that I changed the search from Google to Bing.
