People who do a lot of copying of quotes from other sites are going to like Kwout, which launched yesterday. Use it to grab a quick quotation or other screen shot from a web site and embed it into a blog or other website (one click to Flickr and Tumblr).

To grab a quote, just type a URL into the Kwout home page, or use the bookmarklet when on a web page. A new window pops up that allows you to make a selection, resize the window, and grab it.
