The Lumifi Research Widget for OS X Dashboard is available now, a powerful contextual search tool.

The widget analyzes the relationships between words to produce contextual insight not possible with traditional indexing or search technologies. Lumifi’s products are different than Google and other search engines in that they read each search result for you to determine what is actually relevant to your research rather than what happens to be popular at the moment.

The widget uses the company's proprietary software that powers Lumifi’s interactive research and collaboration portal which was introduced earlier this year. 

The widget offers a rich user interface programmed in Flash, which has been extended to run smoothly on Tiger and Leopard systems using technology licensed from AmnestyWidgets.
