"The preview window -- or ClueViewer, as it is called -- stays open as long as the mouse remains inside it. From the preview, you can move to the previous or next link preview -- a feature that is especially useful when reading a search results page, as Intercon is quick to point out. You can also bookmark the link or open it in a new tab, email the link or copy it to your desktop clipboard, change Inteclue options, or report bugs. In addition, should you have a sudden burst of gratitude or generosity, you can use the preview window's icons make a donation to Interclue from the preview window. More practically, you can right-click in the preview to get the usual Firefox content menu that allows you to save an image or a block of highlighted text. Using Interclue, you might be able to research a topic and save notes without ever leaving your starting page, especially if it is a list of search results."
