Add shortcut keys to open a new google result tab for selected text. Shortcut keys can be set in above left menu in Extensions.
Keyboard shortcut keys: 1. Alt+1 -> Open google result of selected text in foreground tab. 2. 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.)
