Meet the !bang selection Developer

Why was !bang selection created?

While Firefox allows me to search selected text using the configured search engine, it doesn't allow me to search each specific selection on a specifically selected site. And while add-ons like Context Search and Context Search X offer a selection context menu that makes it possible to search selections on any of the installed search engines / sites, I prefer a context menu that allows me to use DuckDuckGo's !bang syntax as it supports almost 4,000 search engines / sites, many difficult if not impossible to install in Firefox and thus to search selections on using one of the aforementioned add-ons.

What's next for !bang selection

Several ideas I am considering and may implement in a future version:
- Add option to replace the default Search selection context menu item with the menu this add-on offers (so that the selection context menu becomes less cluttered).
- Support for Thunderbird.
- Improve usability of preferences.
- Add option to open DuckDuckGo and fill query using a keyboard shortcut.

If you have an idea about which feature should be implemented first or have a new idea, you are welcome to share your thoughts by posting a review.
