Lov it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really awesome, but I hope a new version compatible with Firefox 3.6 version soon, I got 40 addons and there are only 2 incompatible, this is one.

so useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The feature offered by this add-on should be added in default Firefox features: well done!

But the keyboard shortcuts (the very useful part of this add-on) are not working here on Firefox 3.5 and Mac Os X 10.6.2: any suggestion? Thanks :)

Re: so useful

Glad you like it. I'm not sure about the Mac problem, I don't have a Mac myself. Does Cmd+K not do anything ? Does it perhaps do something else, it may be that on Mac's that keyboard combination is already mapped to another function.

Useful plugin.

If all list of search engines (drop down) are shown while looping is quite more useful.

I request for this feature.

I like it! It's really that what I looked for. Thank you.

And I use option "scroll in a loop".

Simple and to the point, very useful.

Would be even better if it worked while typing in the search box even if the mouse isn't hovered over the field. ( :focus in addition to :hover )

This extension is genius. The idea is novel, but suprisingly useful. I've only had it installed for a day, but I'm not sure I can live without it anymore. Congrats, sir, on a wonderful extension.

Fabulous add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I especially like the ability to select text on a page, right click and scroll over the "Search X for..." context menu item to change the search engine. And it even loops!

If I may make a suggestion, the ability to add quotes around the search terms would be very useful. Perhaps with Ctrl + click and/or middle click.

Fantastic! Particularly the ability to change search engines by right clicking and then using the scroll wheel over the "Search X for..." context menu item to switch the search engine.

If I may make a suggestion, a quoted search addition would be very useful. For example, Ctrl + click or middle click to add quotes around the search terms.

omg this is essential but please consider adding a global shortcut for changing search engine (ctrl+keying and then arrowing is way too slow for my needs).

Amazingly useful - Suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This app is beautiful in its simplicity and use.

I do have a suggestion though. Having to go to the top right every time I have to change search engine is annoying (I use it a lot) and I thought why not have the ability to right click+scroll to change the search engines? then you wouldn't even have to go up there.

It is also useful when you want to drag text into the search box: instead of going up, changing, going back down, dragging text back up you would simply right click+scroll then drag up to the search box

Suggestions

Hi

Glad you like the extension. However, there might be some solutions already to the problems you mention.

* If you select some text on the webpage and then right click then you see a menuitem 'Search google.com for 'text''. This is built in to Firefox. However, if you move your mouse over this item and scroll then the search engine is changed. So you don't always have to go the right corner and you certainly don't have to drag text there.

* Another way to change the search engine is to use keyboard shortcuts. Use ctrl+k to set focus to the search box. Pressing ctrl+k again will switch to the next engine, pressing ctrl+shift+k will switch to the previous one.

Hope this helps,
Einar

Small Suggestion... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would be nice if you could add an Icon with Up Down arrows indicating that This Extension is installed and active and also as a hint for new users...
