Marty wrote a Macro for VS that performs a google search on the current F1 keyword in the IDE. Check it out for yourself here: http://www.little-garins.com/Blogs/marty/archive/2004/06/24/171.aspx
This is pretty cool, but what impressed me was the quick turnaround of ideas into reality amongst developer bloggers.
Last Wednesday I wrote this in my blog: “F1 is still cool, but I wonder how useful an “Alt+F1” to google search would be. Maybe that will be my next project. “
On Thursday I found this trackback from Marty: “I was struck by Josh's comments so I built one and I am sharing it with you. Hopefully you will find it helpful as well.”
Stefano says: “A great idea...Thanks for the tip.“
Roland, in addition to also providing a cool tweak to scope the results to MSDN, says it's “really cool“.
Enjoy - Josh
