Internet Explorer 8 has a useful new feature called ‘Accelerators‘. We’ve created an Accelerator for the CycleStreets photomap search. It basically gives you a one-click search for photos for a given bit of text.

To get our Accelerator for IE8, go to our Search page, click on the blue install button.
Then confirm, ideally clicking on the tickbox to make this appear more clearly:

Click to confirm

So now it’s installed, how do I use it?

Just highlight some text on a webpage, e.g. ‘potholes’, and a little blue button will appear. Then just click on the CycleStreets entry:

Highlight some text ...

and you’ll then get photos for what you highlighted:
