  • (2022-07-09) Viktor Iniakin: Разработчик огромный молодец, такие функции должны быть по умолчанию. Есть пара пожеланий - заменить палитру на менее вырвиглазную (слишком много красных плиток) и добавить поиск по картинкам яндекс. Спасибо
  • (2022-06-27) Fred Eric: The best of its kind. I’ve been awaiting such extension for years. I used to use something similar in firefox 2, ages ago. Broken by upgrades.

  • (2021-03-28) RainLine: When I use this, it turns the search engine into Russian language (google, youtube, etc). I will not use this anymore.

  • (2017-08-28) marxdrive: Just what I was looking for, a great replacement for the original 'drag and drop zones' (mostly used on Firefox).

  • (2019-05-28, v:1.44) Martine Kline: Open new search tabs in the background
    Is it possible for new tabs to open in the background, so I can quickly search for many terms from the same page, and then navigate over to them once I am ready?
  • (2019-05-03, v:1.44) Diane: I'm sorry. I accidentally erased it...
    1. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/simple-drag-drop-search/aiifonoffdkfmmiadigmjhoameijkdbb 2. https://imgur.com/LNqmk3h 3. Like this plugin, select both background and foreground I hope it is possible. I'd like to be able to set up each site individually. If that is possible. I really appreciate the kind answer.
  • (2018-05-17, v:1.44) Joker: "Look in"
    When the page is in the position "Look in" - it is not possible to change the search text, the search window does not open.
  • (2017-10-01, v:1.1) marxdrive: No longer working
    Worked fine for a while, now when selecting text nothing happens. Also, when you go to the settings page there is nothing there.
