Alt+Shift+1 -> Open google result of selected text in background tab. *Shortcut keys are editable at chrome://extensions/shortcuts **For Chromebook users** (maybe also Mac OS users) The Alt+1 key will click the first icon in the Shelf, and it will not work on Chrome browser. After the installation, please change the shortcut key from "Alt+1" to another one at chrome://extensions/shortcuts then avoid the built-in shortcut keys on your OS. In the setting page, the right box should be "In Chrome". (Input chrome://extensions/shortcuts in the address bar and press Enter to open a setting page.)
