Selected Search 0.4.160328 Requires Restart
by Kamil Sartys
Select some text, then select the search engine. Powered by just two small mouse movements and two clicks, this add-on will take your search experience to a whole new level of laziness.
This add-on has been marked as experimental by its developers
About this Add-on
The exact click behavior, as well as the search engines shown in the popup can be adjusted in the add-on options.
As a small by-product there is the possibility to let Selected Search automatically copy the selected text to the clipboard (much like "autocopy" (https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/383) does, i guess)
The latest versions also support Tree Style Tab (https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/tree-style-tab), where new background tabs will be created as child tabs.
This add-on is inspired by the "Context Search" extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/240) and it works in a similar manner, only that it saves you a significant amount of manual labor
- discontinuous selections (using CTRL) don't seem to work
