I use it every day. It's especially useful for comparisoon shopping.
for those willing to use it with a firefox version newer than 3.5 (e.g firefox 3.6beta), I wrote a how-to, available here : http://rfournier.homelinux.org/~raph/freeblog/archives/2009/12/22/installing_a_not-yet_supported_extension_on_your_firefox-beta/index.html
great extension by the way, thanks
I don't ever use the search bar since I prefer to enter search keywords into the address bar, but I had been stuck with it anyway because there was no other way to select the search engine used for searches initiated from the context menu. This add-on removes that obstacle. Thank you. :)
-It's been mentioned before, but how about right clicking on a single word and context menu pops up? Smartsearch and web search pro have this built in, so context search is missing the needed functionality.
-An icon would be very useful, especially when your using darker themes.
Klein aber fein - erspart eine Menge Copy & Paste
Absolutely brilliant! Extremely convenient and time-saving.
I've teemed this up with Context Highlight. Along with the 45± search plug-ins I've added and made, who needs a toolbar;))
please add icon in menu!
Left-click doesn't open in background. It switches immediately to the new tab, no matter which mouse button used. Also I miss the ability to enable/disable search engines used in the context menu. However, still a useful addon. Hoping the update will fix the mentioned issues.
Needs an icon so you can find it quickly in a cluttered context menu.
Great add-on, but I'd like the searches to be directly in the right click menu instead of a submenu.
One of my most used addon!
Should be a build-in feature.
This functionality should be in Firefox by default. It's indispensable for me...
Would love to see an update, this is an indispensable add-on and one of my favourites. This functionality should really be integrated into FF.
Bardzo dobre rozszerzenie. Zaznaczamy tekst i zamiast biegać do paska wyszukiwarki (bo nie chcemy szukać na wybranej stronie), możemy wybrać inną wyszukiwarkę prosto z menu..
Calling it indispensable would be an understatement. Should have been a default function of Firefox.
Just excellent. The missing piece for the Search Engines.
Awesome addon. It would be even better (10 *'s) if it worked with Thunderbird.
Simple, basic, does the job!
Totally agree with abnerg. It should be default functionality in Firefox.
Excellent work Ben Basson.
I find this a very good add-on. It is exactly the functionality I was looking for except for one thing. It would be great to have the option of instead of replacing the "Search for" option on the menu, add another menu entry called "search using" and in that entry list the other engines.
Thanks for the great extension
A must have for anybody that does research on the web. Period.
Needs the option to add more search engines and delete the ones that you don't need.
