Wikitup – freeware brings a global knowledgebase to your fingertips


Wikitup is a freeware program which gives you CTRL-Right Click access to an instant dictionary and search engine, from any Windows program, browsers, word-processors, spreadsheets et al. The cool bits include a live YouTube search and video player, and instant access to Wikipedia definitions for any word you highlight.


I can’t say I’m hugely in love with the interface, it’s a little too fussy and olde style for my liking, but there’s no question that the utility of the program is top notch. I can see it as a real time saver in the right conditions. I’m going to keep it installed on test for a while before declaring it a keeper though.

 So why open the browser, type the search engine URL, type the keyword and then click the links? Wikitup takes you directly to most relevant data sources. We call that Multi-Vertical Search. We believe that with the right choice of data sources, Multi-Vertical search produces great results faster and more conveniently than regular search engine.

  • Hey @redferret!
    Thanks for your coverage, I loved the article.

    Agree with you – the GUI should be updated. We will be working on it.

    All the best!
