  • I have tested several similar addon, and this has everything I needed. Great addon.
  • Excellent extension, just two very, very minor suggestions. 1) Could you add a maximum character limit option to the auto-popup. You already have a minimum limit, and personally, I'd rather not have the thing pop up when I'm copying a whole paragraph. 2) I couldn't find this extension when looking for "context search" in the addon library, so maybe improve your SEO in the
    Thank you for the review! I don't know why I didn't think about the maximum limit but this is why I like user suggestions. :) It makes a lot of sense. I have been away from SSS development for a while but when I return (soon™) I'll add that.

    Regarding the SEO for context search, maybe that's also because there are a lot of extensions with context search in the title (which will match more strongly), but you are right, I should try to get it to appear for that search if possible. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    Cheers!

  • Best one I've found.
  • Just Sooooo Goooddd...
  • must have add-on
  • I am loving this extension! Just wondering if you could add a user page or something where users can submit more examples (If something like this already exists, please let me know!)? A couple of things I'm looking for but haven't figured out just yet are how to have the selected text's hyperlinked url open as cached link [basically launch url as a google webcache search] or similarly open link as viewsource. Hope that somehow makes sense.

    In any event, the app is awesome. Highly recommend!
    Thank you for the review and sorry for the late reply! There's no user list for this but from time to time I see if there are some more engines that make sense as defaults or as examples that come with SSS.

    These are good suggestions. Thanks for sharing them with everyone. :) I will think about the user list (actually added that to my to-do list), but it might be a little nightmare-ish to maintain with reasonable quality, so no promises! ;)

    Cheers!

  • 非常好用,自定義常用搜尋引擎後,省掉不少時間
  • Last thing you need to ad: the possibility to disable the plug-in from a personal list of websites!
    Late reply, sorry! I'll add this to my list of tasks for evaluation. ;)

    Thanks for the review!

  • Hope author build-in the (https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms} site:{hostname})
    It's cool, but many people dont's know this. we don't need install addition addon like "Search Site WE"any more.
    此扩展可以搜索当前网站,添加 https://www.google.com/search?q={searchTerms} site:{hostname}
    这样就不用安装 Search Site WE这样的扩展的.
    Thank you for the review! Searching the "current website" was a suggestion from a user, and I was hoping to get more people to know about "hostname", so I added it as a default (but disabled to not cause confusion). :)

    Cheers!

  • It simply wasn't quite what I was looking for. The popup was a bit annoying and in the way (and I didn't want it to show up just for highlighting text) and the context menu was inconvenient since you had to go through two menus to use it.
    I was looking for something that added a quick-search option to the right-click context menu as far up as possible.
    I can say that the plugin looks well designed, though, but it just didn't have the features I wanted :)
    UPDATE: I see, thanks for explaining! I'm not sure if you'll get a notification for this reply, but oh well.

    For the popup being annoying there are options to make it appear only when you click a key combination, or move it away from the cursor, for example. The options page has many of these. :)

    As for the context menu being a sub menu, unfortunately that's, as far as I know, a WebExtensions limitation that I can't do anything about :( (Unless there's a single search engine!) See this for more details: https://github.com/CanisLupus/swift-selection-search/issues/129

    But I understand. Thanks anyway!
