IBM Connections QuickSearch for Chrome updated

I first blogged about the IBM Connections QuickSearch plugin for Google Chrome three weeks ago. Back then it was at version 1.8.

Remarkably since then the author, Romain Lienard, has released four updated versions:

[titled_box title=”Changelog for IBM Connections QuickSearch”]

V.2.2:
– New group feature !!!
– Can now post a message to the user’s board with @mention (using the new group feature)
– Can now share a File to a group of users. To unlock the “share this file” feature you have to be first on a webpage which is an IBM Connections File URL

V2.1:
– “share this URL” now works with communities (with typeahead)

V2.0:
– new “share this URL” feature
– UI bug fixes

V1.9:
– a context menu is now available. Just select some piece of text within any webpage, then right-click and select a service to fire the search !

V1.8.1:
– can now set a default scope (in the options page)[/titled_box]

I’m so impressed by this development effort, and by the rate that new features are being added.

For example, the context-sensitive search:

QuickSearch menu

and ‘Share this URL’:

QuickSearch share

If you access IBM Connections on a regular basis and use Google Chrome as your main browser, you really would benefit from this plugin.

Grab it from the Chrome Store (it’s free), and say a big thank you to Romain (@lienardr)!

    Hi Stuart, thanks for your blog update ! You forgot to speak about the new (and a little bit hidden) “share this file” feature :o) (the groups can also be used in the “share this url” feature) I’m glad to improve the IBM Connections experience for the very few users like me who are using Google Chrome at work 🙂 If you have some feature ideas, let me know !

      Oh, although the box is big & orange I didn’t realized that you posted the full change log 🙂
