Image from store Selection Context Search
Description from store Summary: - Right click on a selected text and choose the search website from the popup window or the context menu - The website list is edited in the Extension Options page. The list can include bookmark folders. - Unlimited depth of nested folders in the context menu - Export or Import the website list - Optional use of placeholders - The extension can do advanced searches such as: reverse image search, page translation and current domain search The search websites can be added by using three methods: 1. Go to the search page, right-click on the field where you type the search keywords and choose "Add search page" from the context menu. 2. Search websites can be added manually in the Extension Options page. By default the selected text is appended to the website address. Optionally, a placeholder can be used to specify where in the address to insert the selected text. 3. Search websites can also be added by using a folder named "Search" from the Chrome Bookmarks bar. To use this method: - Create a folder named "Search" in Chrome Bookmarks bar - Go to the search website you want to add and right click on the field where you type the text you want to search - A context menu will be displayed then choose "Add a Keyword for this Search..." - A window will be displayed then choose to save the bookmark in the "Search" folder then choose a unique keyword - Optionally the bookmark can be created in sub-folders of "Search" folder Both lists are combined and shown in the context menu when right click on a selected text. The Options page list is shown first, then the Bookmarks list. The search page can open in: a new tab, a background tab, the current tab or in a new window.

  • (2022-01-21) Alex P: It works, but does not allow adding, changing and rearranging of search engines anymore.
  • (2021-11-17) Divyang Malvi: It is literally awesome. I always wanted extension that can search whenever I select text (i.e Song Name) and the pop-up shows up which shows the sites I selected in extension settings. And when I click, it'll search the selection text on those sites. This extension exactly lets me do that. Thanks
  • (2021-11-09) 야츠오: thank you
  • (2021-11-07) John Rice: Didnt get it. Where ist icon bar from preview?
  • (2021-10-30) Mohamed Abd elwanis: not save my latest setting on Microsoft edge Any fix for this?
  • (2021-08-08) W Q: Chrome / Vivaldi : Not working This extension simply doesn't remember the settings in Chrome / Vivaldi ... After every restart they must be imported again. I'm not the first one complaining about this, but did someone find a solution ? I tried several times to have an answer from the developer on his published email-address mailto://[email protected] but never received any answer
  • (2021-08-05) Okita Toshimichi: Original and useful, THANK YOU!
  • (2021-05-18) Pagal Nixon: Its an absolute boon, But there should be an option to add a site address to be excluded from this context search option, it is hindering my work website where the search contents are accidently getting copied into the fields, where i dont want this
  • (2021-05-06) Ron Ron: Хорошее расширение, но не сохраняет настройки, приходится делать экспорт настроек перед закрытием браузера, а после - делать импорт. Ужас, хоть самому ковырять код... Но не до этого(((
  • (2021-04-26) Alan DJIGSTAR: Перехожу с Firefox, где раньше каких только не было поисковиков, даже dragNdrop, типа стаскиваешь текст в одну сторону и сразу ищет на нужном сайте. Таких не нашел, переключился на подобное. Российские ссылки на Рутор Кинопоиск Рутрекер вручную, но работают. Правда не все иконки отображаются. Нашёл дополнение еще лучше, поэтому только 4 звезды.
  • (2021-04-16) Charlie Leopoldo: Fantastic , great work - TY so much you can customize to search in any website
  • (2021-03-28) Qaiser Azim: Nowadays this extension does not work correctly and effectively I Add a new websites with a placeholder but it does not save my latest setting and nor does it synchronize with other computer how to fix it
  • (2021-01-03) AttALiUs SciUS: Great extension. It is very easy to set up and probably the best one out there.....I use it on Chrome, Chrome Canary and Opera (via "Install Chrome extensions" app)....The only problem I have, and it only happens in Chrome, is that every time I close it, it forgets the setting I've made and I have to import them every time I open it....Is there a solution for this problem?
  • (2020-12-27) Jesus: It has been two month since I first download it and it has been working great but I wish I could make shortcut for my search's since right click then finding the site I want to search with takes some time but would be a lot faster if I can configure a key to do those those steps for me. Another thing I want is to have icons right next to the site name or to have the ability only have the icon in the context menu.
  • (2020-12-11) Dalia Sued: Hola, me encanta la extensión, me ahorra muchísimo tiempo, pero últimamente tengo problemas ya que elijo los sitios que quiero que aparezcan en el Popup Windows, cuando cierro la sesión tengo que volver a hacerlo de nuevo o sea no mantiene la configuración.
  • (2020-11-06) Jorge Saldaña: La mejor de todas, no la cambio por ninguna.
  • (2020-11-05) Aimee Neff: Great extension! My only gripe is that in the chrome version, the search settings we have created do not remain loaded and have to be re-uploaded each time you close the browser. The Firefox version of this extension appears to keep the settings file loaded. What's the difference?
  • (2020-10-31) Jesus Mendoza: It's better then context menu search for searching but it looks worse.
  • (2020-09-20) yon den: 首先,值得肯定的一点,该扩展非常棒!然后提个小小的建议:在右键菜单进入该扩展的列表,假如我有一个目录,目录里有多个搜索引擎,现在的情况是,一次只能使用一个引擎执行搜索,假如我们可以通过直接点击目录,一次使用目录里的所有引擎来执行搜索,这样,效率就更高了。譬如,我添加了一个目录名叫“搜索”,里面有百度,必应,谷歌三个搜索引擎,然后我选中文本,直接点击搜索目录,这时开启三个标签页分别执行三个搜索。希望考虑下,谢谢!!
  • (2020-08-29) Alvin Chong: Love this extension, works perfectly what I want. But I only saw option "Use Windows-1251 encoding (Cyrillic)", hope developer can add a "Use HTML ASCII encoding", because some of website accept link encoded by HTML ASCII.
  • (2020-06-27) aunsen A: 一但重启所有设置全没了,firefox上就没有问题
  • (2020-04-15) Luís Gomes: I use Opera browser and I make a lot of use of the built in pop up menu. The problem is that this menu pops up, it covers the Selection Context Search menu. So it would be useful to add an option to choose between the Selection Context Search menu pop up above or below the selected text. Thanks for this extension and your work.
  • (2020-04-14) James: Awesome to the Max!
  • (2020-04-06) Renato Guimaraes: This extension works well, my only gripe is that it automatically copies the selection to the clipboard, which is incredibly frustrating.
  • (2020-03-28) Newfel Hmch: You add something useful so you deserve a 5 stars thank you for your extension really make the things faster and easy
  • (2020-03-04) 方志宏: 一旦关闭再打开,保存的全没了
  • (2020-02-29) 大象的科学上网频道: 特别特的好用,提高效率。真棒!
  • (2020-01-15) Hà Nguyễn Mạnh: great! but you can improve as: Auto close old pop up, Create a popup icon that is different from the browser icon...
  • (2020-01-10) Кирилл Тихонов: После обновления хром, расширение перестало сохранять настройки. исправьте пожалуйста. After updating chrome, the extension stopped saving settings. fix please.
  • (2020-01-02) Hola Tom: i've tried several similar extensions, this is the best, i love it.
  • (2019-12-26) Auckland Drive: I want it for 2 things: first, works fine which is search with google but 2nd one is google translate it doesn't show in popup menu. I want it badly to work! (for example I select a word in french and if possible this word will show directly in google translate with english beside it) is there anyway to fix it! otherwise I would give you 5 stars
  • (2019-12-13) Curie Wilhelm: good
  • (2019-12-11) fbqifhi qwfhoqfh: It could be good extension but can't save custom settings, I have tried many times and have to uninstall it.
  • (2019-10-28) i j: %s function not work but in this extension work : chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gipnlpdeieaidmmeaichnddnmjmcakoe for example: i can't search free apps by this url : https://play.google.com/store/search?q=%s&c=apps&price=1 price=1 means free please fix it.
  • (2019-10-23) lee midas: Selection Context Search !! You or your company have made good use of the Selection Context Search extension for the Chrome browser. It seems to be a great program. However, after removing the wrong or unnecessary engines from the built-in search engines, I added and saved some of the engines that I personally needed and output the configuration file to the outside. After some time of installation, it was not a problem to load and use the configuration file saved externally. However, if you close the browser and run it again, it will revert back to the default settings you made, and the settings you made will not work until you reload them each time. There is only a button for output input and a change to the default, but there is no save button, and it seems to be a problem with the program itself. I would be grateful if you could fix the problem in the program as soon as possible. Thank you for reading till the end and thank you for your hard work !!
  • (2019-09-30) Icsulescu Cutare: Great extension but an improvement would be to go to the search website directly in the context menu, without "Find... using". It would be useful in my case because I use the extension only to search in bookmarks. Then it would have been nice if Chrome bookmark search showed what folder the bookmark is in straight from the search results. Another problem is that this extension won't open anything from the pdf viewer that is built into chrome.
  • (2019-08-29) Bang Tannie Self: just what i needed. thanks
  • (2019-06-24) Themis Dsp: An invaluable extension! In addition to the great customization offered (by inserting one's own search), if copy to clipboard is selected in the options->more options department, there is no need to copy anything by using context menu. Productivity is guaranteed! PS One (in my opinion critical) suggestion: Please, enable the use of a modifier to copy the selected text to clipboard (i.e. Ctrl or Alt or something like that) or the use of mouse click. Invaluable as it is, this function presents a certain problem. If we select a text, it is copied to the clipboard (which is perfect). If we try to paste the text stored in the clipboard by highlighting an existing text in a field, the existing field text is copied in the clipboard replacing the text we have stored and ... nothing happens. To make use of the clipboard storage we first have to delete the destination text and only then we can paste the stored text.
  • (2019-06-21) K Luk: Hello! I am from0ld Eastern Germany, temp... ok, fine app, nice extension: but problems with the search-parameter %s I have some website, which change %s to %25s and then, the icon doesn´t appears?! please, what to do? So Thanks!

  • (2019-05-12) soul mate: awesome
  • (2019-05-03) saud ALblwi: Loved it
  • (2019-04-29) Stefane Guevremont: Rare do I find an extension that is better than the actual function I'm looking for. I was looking for a hotkey to quickly search highlighted text in a web page, and found an automatic popup menu with direct search of the highlighted text. Suggestions on making this Extension even better: - Middle-click -> Open Search Page in a background tab - Customizable hotkey
  • (2019-04-28) Tank Connors: Where is the COPY button on this? I went in options and can t seem to find it??
