  • (2018-08-18) Stephen Paszt: This extension has the same issue that others like it do, it doesn't URL encode the selected text so ampersands and other characters not allowed in URLs mess things up. The options page is buggy and jumps around (seriously) making it difficult to create menu items.
  • (2018-04-11) Jason Li: No response after selecting the Web Data file as instructed. Useless.
  • (2018-04-08) Ghost Rocker: Не видно его в меню вообще,хоть добавляй свои плагины...ничего не происходит
  • (2016-10-26) Han Sinh: лучшее из всех подобных
  • (2016-08-30) Lissa Hailey: Doesn't work. Can't add search engines. Utterly useless.
  • (2016-04-25) Pneumatic Joe: Looks promising. No export feature.

  • (2017-11-06, v:1.1) Matthew Jones: Multipl Top-Level Menu Options
    I see that if you add a single Top Level item, it becomes the top menu item. But if you add another, it drops them both under Adv. Context Search. Is there a way to have multiple top level menu options? (Or does chrome limit the plugins to just one?)
