Many people rarely visit their favorite search engine's homepage, but instead use the search bar in their browser. Likewise, you can add Powerset to your search bar instead of going directly to Powerset.com. The process is easy.

Step 1: Go to www.powerset.com and note the blue glow in your search bar

Step 2: Click on the drop down and select Add "Powerset"

Step 3: You're ready to rock! Instead of going to your favorite search engine or Wikipedia for Wikipedia queries, try searching Powerset instead.

Sometimes, you encounter Wikipedia articles while surfing the Web.  A number of users have told us that they prefer the features and usability of Powerset's enhanced Wikipedia pages to Wikipedia itself. So, Powerset developer/designer Ian Collins has created a Greasemonkey script that will redirect Wikipedia URLs to Powerset.

To install, you need to be using Firefox (sorry, IE users!). First, install Greasemonkey and then install the Redirect to Powerset script. Now, whenever you encounter a Wikipedia article, you'll be automatically redirected to Powerset.  If you want to go back to the original Wikipedia article, e.g. for editing or to see if anything has recently changed, then you can use the Edit Wikipedia Article link at the top of Powerset Wikipedia pages.
