Right-Click Search IMDb

Description from extension meta

Quickly search for highlighted text on IMDb via right-click

Image from store Right-Click Search IMDb
Description from store This simple extension adds an IMDb search for any text you highlight to the right-click menu. If you see a name that you want to look up on IMDb, just highlight the name, right click, and select "Search IMDb for <Your text>" on the menu. The search executes in a new tab. The extension is tiny and takes very little memory. To keep it small, there are no options. The extension "Right-Click Search IMDbPro" is available if you want to search IMDbPro (requires IMDbPro account). Install both if you want both search options.

  • (2020-06-01, v:1.0) Marcel M: Encode '&' in search string to %26 etc
    Just a quick fix, so you can also search for "Fast & Furious" etc. in Line "url : "http://www.imdb.com/find?=all&q="+encodeURIComponent(search_target)," produces "Fast%20%26%20Furious" complete function: function doSearch (search_target, tab) { chrome.tabs.create( { url : "http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q="+encodeURIComponent(search_target), selected : true, index : tab.index + 1 } ); }

  • (2017-07-04, v:1.0) Permissions
    Hi, I'd like to add this extension but when I go to install it a message says it can: "Read and change all your data on the websites that you visit" Does this mean it will read passwords?
  • (2015-07-30, v:1.0) V Ger: tabs
    can you make an option to NOT open the new tab
