Once upon a time, you were forced to awkwardly mark and copy text from one location and paste the text to the (hopefully correct) other location. Pictures to be uploaded had to be located and selected with the internet-browser’s file-dialog. An unwieldy, time-consuming and frequently irritating waste of time. And if the text was in another language, it had to be marked up, copied, and passed through translation-software, before being inserted in its final destination. Now, this can all happen much faster and easier. The advantages of click.to are obvious. Text, images, videos, and other documents which are selected can be sent to other applications with a single click. And the programs can even handle the selection automatically. You might say, click.to transforms everything in your computer into a hyperlink.

Hover over the name with your cursor and a drop-down menu appears. Select Google Maps and the browser opens to display the result of your selection in Google Maps. Now that you know where the protagonist is, you can simply continue reading after mere seconds of distraction.
