Sometimes you don’t need to make an extensive search and you just need a peek at a very specific piece of information. Pagehop is ideal for such scenarios.
Quick Info Recipes
Here is a list of some useful recipes that would qualify under this category.
Check of numerical data or other facts
WolframAlpha would fit best in this category.
Check the local time at a place
The Time recipe is invoked with a name of a place and returns the current local time for the place, as well as it’s disposition from UTC.
Check the weather conditions at a place
Weather will do just that, plus, it will give you a short prognosis for the next 3 days.
Get the dictionary definition(s) of a word
Since 1.0, Pagehop comes bundled up with the DefineWord recipe. It provides results from many dictionaries such as the The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia, WordNet and others.
Soon all Vertical Searches might get as easy
For example if you want to have a glance on the parameters list of a git command on the Terminal and you have learned exactly how to get there with a few key strokes, using the DocSearch recipe, it will be as easy as using any other Quick Info recipe.
