Here's one: http://vivosearchlight.org/
It's a bookmarklet that installs simply by dragging a button on that web site to the menu bar in your browser. Once installed you can go to any web page on the net, then click on the "VIVO Searchlight" link in the menu bar. That action takes the text from the web site, does some simple text analysis, then sends common terms to a search engine that has indexed several instances of a semantic web application which contains data about researches. A window then pops up at the top of the browser window which shows you who may be doing research in the subject area represented on the web page you're looking at. You can then highlight any text on that page and it sends just that bit of text to the search engine to refine results.
