What is KeywordSelection?

KeywordSelection extends the functionality of keyword searches so that they can also be activated with the mouse. Simply select some text in your current window and then click on a keyword-enabled bookmark. A search will be performed with the text selection. If no text is selected, it will open the bookmark website at the root level.
