Hoekom is Context Search gebou?

Context Search came about as an alternative to Ben Goodger's SmartSearch. I liked the idea of being able to choose a search engine at the point of searching (being restricted to the default seemed a bit limited), but I didn't want to use the search keywords system when there was a perfectly good search engine selection in the top right hand corner.

I mimicked the menu structure and with minimal effort I was able to get the result I wanted, a handy time saver that I use on every computer I work on.

Wat is volgende vir Context Search?

There are a couple of enhancements that I would like to make to Context Search in the near future:

1) Localisation support - I've been trying to keep the extension slim and simple, but I will implement full localisation support in order to fix the weird ordering of words given out in some languages.

2) Add the "Manage Search Engines" link to the bottom of the menu (but only if the search bar in the top right is hidden). This will give people who discard the normal search bar an easy access point to the engine customisation window.

Please feel free to contact me regarding other ideas, and source code contributions are always welcome.
