Here’s my nirvana. Every app that manages one or more namespaces — and it’s hard to think of an app that doesn’t — would offer namespace completion as a service. Let’s make it a web service, while we’re at it, so it’s available locally or remotely in the same way. Now when I type ‘g’ and hit F8, ActiveWords (having associated ‘g’ with Google) can reach into the browser’s Google search history and enable me to complete directly on that namespace. Or when I type ‘e’ and hit F8, ActiveWords — having associated ‘e’ with Outlook — can reach into the Outlook contacts and enable me to complete directly on that namespace. Which, if you have allowed me the privilege, might in some cases be your address book not mine.[Scripting News]
