Site Search 188.8.131.52-signed
by Drew Volpe
Search the current site with one click. Adds an item in the right-click menu so you can select text and search the current site for it using Google. It also comes with an optional toolbar.
About this Add-on
In the right-click menu, the two options are for either domain of the current page (for example, "mozilla.org" for "http://addons.mozilla.org/page.html") or the full host (for example, "addons.mozilla.org" for "http://addons.mozilla.org/page.html"). Select any text, right-click, and perform either of these from the menu.
The toolbar has these options as well as "Your Top Sites", "Drew's Top Sites", and "Search Google". For "Your Top Sites", the extension looks through the user's history and finds the most frequently-visited domains (currently the top 100). It then creates a search limited to only these domains using Bing. "Drew's Top Sites" is a Google CSE built based on the author's top sites. And "Search Google" is a normal Google search.
-The toolbar can be hidden/shown by going to "View"->"Toolbars"->"Site Search".
-By default, right clicking opens a new tab and the toolbar opens the results in the active tab, and this can be configured via the preferences.

I built this to scratch my own itch but would love to hear any comments or suggested features. It's open-source and available on Github.
