Image from store Simple = Select + Search
Description from store It's simple: select some text, right click, and search on your preferred search engines. Configuring your search engines is very easy: There are multiple pre-configured search engines to pick from (like Amazon, BBC, CNN, etc.) plus you can add any other you might like. To add new search engines, follow instructions in the Help section of the Options page. Once a new search engine is configure, it will show up the next time you select some text in your browser, right click and go to the Simple = Select + Search menu option. I'ts my first public extension. I hope you like it. Please, be adviced: the usage of this extension is being tracked by Google Analytics. It also tracks which search engines are the most used by users, so I can then be able to add them to the featured Search Engines list. The extension does not track the identity of its user, nor what terms they're looking for. Only the search URL syntax is being recorded. This information won't be shared with third parties.

  • (2020-10-05) Xiangyu Tang: No longer works as of Oct. 2020. Search in google does not work anymore.
  • (2019-11-04) Peter Beckley: Great add-on! Once configured and customized, it's one of the most powerful upgrades you can do for Chrome. The drag-and-drop is a bit wonky, and sometimes it mysteriously eats rows or duplicates them. A bit frustrating so I hope it's looked at and fixed in an upcoming update.
  • (2019-08-20) Mart Männik: Tried to find an alternative to the fantastic Multi Search 4.5.4 (which google has now removed for some idiotic reason...) failed again. This one here has a silly UX flaw - hiding the "search all" option inside a group to the end of the list so you need to hover and hover and hover... waste of time. It should work by clicking the group name.
  • (2019-01-13) Anarkidedk: just what I looked for! I created a simple hardcoded plugin myself to a specific webpage and thought about just what "Simple = Select + Search" is. So saved me a lot of work ;) even if it would have been fun. The options user interface is great. Thanks for that nice plugin.
  • (2019-01-12) Göran Ingvarsson: I have used this extension...extensively for some 4-5 years and it is one of two Chrome extensions I cannot imagine being without (AdBlock being the other). It gives me one-click access to a great number of search engines, most of which I have added myself. This possibility to 1. easily add your preferred engines and 2. save/restore the configuration (invaluable when reinstalling Chrome) are two of its best features. Kudos to you Diego!
  • (2018-06-05) Sam Alter: Does exactly what it is supposed to, the feature of import/export config give you the opportunity to add more search engines on your own if you know what I mean... :p Great Work Developer....

  • (2017-06-23) Eugene Pro: Really nice extension that doesn't require any permissions unlike others. Only lacks possibility to make selected search engines top-level.

  • (2019-07-11, v:0.4.1) funkeywoookey: Thank You
    Just wanted to drop you a line a thank you for this extension. We use Chrome exclusively at work and run 50+ searches a day through various systems. Your extension is an extreme time saver!
  • (2018-08-20, v:0.4.1) Andrew Moran: Configuration file
    Which file on the disk actually stores the additions you've made, e.g. adding search engines. I know I can export the configuration manually, but I want to be able to restore it from a backup when it becomes corrupted and I lose all of my search engines (which happens more often than I'd like). I've looked everywhere including the Extension directories in ~/Library/Application Support/Google Chrome//Extensions/ and nothing changes if I modify the SSS config
  • (2018-05-30, v:0.4.1) Andrew Moran: Losing and restoring configuration
    Hi there Diego, I absolutely love your extension. I use it so many times a day I can't count. Great work. However, every so often, my configuration (which is quite large) disappears! I'm aware you can back it up, but I tend to get lazy or misplace where I put it. I'm on a Mac with Time Machine running and I _think_ I've managed to figure out where the SSS directory is (~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Extensions/$RANDOM/$VERSION) But I can't find the file which contains my customizations. If I add a custom search (say JB Hifi) to the new default configuration and run: host:0.4.1_0 alm$ find . | xargs grep -r jbhifi It returns nothing. So to wind it up, where does SSS store customized search configurations so I can restore it from a Time Machine backup? Regards, -Andrew.
