If you’re a user of the experimental Firefox add-on called Ubiquity, then you’ll want to go check out the new command available from Powerset for performing Live Search queries. In case you don’t know,Ubiquity lets you interact with your browser using a command-line interface and natural language – something which some people say is a must faster way of getting things done.
The new Live Search command now available lets you instantly get search results from Live.com by typing the word “live” before your query. For example, type “live sean penn” to get Live Search results for Sean Penn. You can also type “live images sean penn” to get a list of images or “live xrank sean penn” to get Sean Penn’s xRank answer. The Powerset team said it was really simple to do this thanks to the new JSON API offered by Live Search.
If you don’t know what Ubiquity is all about, here’s a video that demonstrates the Live Search results in action.
