For an even more ergonomic operation you can simply use the keyword 'mlw' in your browser's search bar, press space and enter your search terms, in this case you can even hide the extension's button to free some space for other extensions.

  • (2022-03-01) Tomasz Barczyk: I've never written a review about an extension before, but I'm honestly surprised how someone can create something that is so obviously flawed to the point of being absolutely useless . . . and then actually publish it. Based on the name, I assumed that articles that would come up using this search would all be on the same topic, except in different language, which is useful since oftentimes an article in one language is much better than one written on the the topic in a different language. So, one would think that the extension would translate the search term entered to pull up relevant results. Instead, you hit search and it opens up a bunch of tabs, each of which is set to search in a different language, but the search term remains the same. So, as words are obviously different in different languages, the results pages contain either no hits, or irrelevant hits.
