Hmm, I used the web archive to go back to 2011. In the FAQ it says the program is free and will always remain so.  Heh heh.  It must call home or something because I installed the 2011 version and running it says the beta is over and asks if you want to go to the web site and download the newest.  This is supposed to be a 14 day trial. I just installed it.  But most of the social sites I do not use.  Likewise I do not use Word or Paint etc..  My browsers already have search in google.

Oh well, it is on here so I will try it for a bit.  :)

But I don't think you can circumvent the trial version.

Edit:  First impression is that it does seem to work.  One thing I don't like though.  If you are already in a browser, highlight some text, then hit control c, click on Wiki icon.  Then you click go to web site.  It will launch the default browser to go there.  So let us say you are in some chrome derivative but have FF as default browser.  When you click to go to the Wiki page for the copied text, you have to wait for FF to load up.  Supposedly it can be extended but I think you have to use their API to roll your own programs unless someone has already made a plugin.

It may be cool for someone who does copy/paste constantly to do work though.

Maybe the price is right but the most recent post on their forum is 1 year ago.
Sounds like a dead piece of software to me.
Besides, Keep extensions working with Slimjet and Chrome are free.

Think Slimjet is the only way at the present time, to get Google Keep extensions the way they can perform on Google Chrome.
Have tried Vivaldi and Opera but these can't handle it (for the time being).

I'm surprised no one who develops extensions for Firefox has yet to make like the aforementioned one.

AutoCopy2 may be able to do some of the same things.  It may be worth a look.

dantheman:
That's a good one MilesAhead, thanks!  :Thmbsup:

Still have to click a few more things to save it to Google Keep though.

As far as clicking in the browser goes, the one that gets me is trying to go back 2 pages with one click.  You cannot use the back arrow context menu since that would be 2 clicks.  I made a JavaScript bookmarklet and put it on the Bookmarks Toolbar.  If there were 2 or more pages in the history it moved -2 pages.  Otherwise it just moved -1.  Worked fairly well.  So what did they do?  They disabled the cache on the back button.  So no matter what it fetches it from the server even if you just loaded it 10 seconds ago.  Go figure!  :)
