Internet Explorer 8 - Wikipedia documents the development and the feature called Accelerators - SCP! SCP! SCP! As simple a 1-2-3! Select, Copy, ?

Internet Explorer 8 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Windows Internet Explorer 8 (abbreviated IE8) is the latest web browser developed by Microsoft in the long running Internet Explorer browser series. The browser was released on March 19, 2009 for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.[1] Both 32-bit and 64-bit builds are available. It is the successor to Internet Explorer 7, released in 2006, and is the default browser for the upcoming Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems except in Europe [2]
According to Microsoft, security, ease of use, and improvements in RSS, Cascading Style Sheets, and Ajax support were its priorities for Internet Explorer 8.[3][4]"

Internet Explorer 8 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Accelerators

A map Accelerator using the IE8 Accelerators Smart tagAccelerators are a form of selection-based search which allow a user to invoke an online service from any other page using only the mouse.[26] Actions such as selecting the text or other objects will give users access to the usable Accelerator services (such as blogging with the selected text, or viewing a map of a selected geographical location), which can then be invoked with the selected object. According to Microsoft, Accelerators eliminate the need to copy and paste content between web pages.[13] IE8 specifies an XML-based encoding which allows a web application or web service to be invoked as an Accelerator service. How the service will be invoked and for what categories of content it will show up is specified in the XML file.[27] Similarities have been drawn between Accelerators and the controversial Smart tags, feature experimented with in the IE 6 Beta but withdrawn after criticism (though later included in MS Office).[8]
