Customize the Opening of the "Search With..." Menu



  • Customize the way the "Search with..." menu is invoking.

    Possible option can be double click on the word, middle click the selected text, even mouse gesture command. Much faster opening of the "search with..." menu. Now it is rightclick selection, select the command, open submenu, select search engine. Too many steps.

    "Selection Search" extension is decent example, but still missing some options.

    @solidsnake Allow Editing of Menus would let us move some or all of the search engines from the submenu directly onto the context menu as I have done in Opera 12.18. That has a hot-click popup menu, but it works only with single words, not longer selections.

  • @pesala Yes, opera <13 has the double click the word for opening the hotclick menu. Vivaldi does nothing on double click except selecting the word.
    That's why i'm suggesting customization of opening the search menu, or even better hotclick menu in which search engines can be added.
    To allow opening menu for more than one word, some other way should be allowed.

    This is how 'Selection search' extension looks like:

  • I second this request. In fact, I was just writing a topic about the same thing, but decided to do a search anyway.

    In Opera 12, I had a single key shortcut that showed a menu with all my search engines and another single key could take me to a search (according to its access key). I also had another key that does a direct search with the default search engine.
