Search for text in clipping files on Google via Safari Internet
I'm not sure how useful this hint is, but I'll pass it along anyway. If you drag a text clipping file onto the Safari icon in the Dock, Safari will pass the contents through to the Google search bar and return the results of a google search.

Possible uses for this could be:
  • Finding the original website that the text clipping came from
  • Keeping saved search queries for easy access in the future (though I sort of thought that this was the whole point of bookmarks)

Search for text in clipping files on Google via Safari

This works with any text—just drag it onto Safari's icon. The clipping file simply acts as a proxy for the data therein.
