Search It - Omnipresent Search Bar

Search It, is a tool very similar to Quicksilver/Spotlight, where you can pull up a search bar on your computer and type what you are looking for. The big difference is where Quicksilver/Spotlight are designed to find/open things on your computer, Search It is a short cut to the internet.

That's right by holding down the option+esc (after download) it brings up the search bar which by default searches Google. You can also do command+return to search Wikipedia or shift+return to search via URL. Basically, you can search the internet w/out having to bring up the browser (a nice little time saver).

However, if you don't like the default settings of Search It you can customize it by clicking on the (S! button) which brings up the preference pane.
