Simple search in Firefox

This add-on can turn any word on any Web page into a search query on multiple search engines

Tech Culture

One cool thing in Firefox is the capability to highlight a word, right-click, and search your default search engine. But that just gives me a general search. I swear I've seen the woman who plays Charlotte on "Lost" in some movie. I'd rather be able to right-click and immediately search IMDB. Here's a Quick Tip for adding multiple search engines to the context menu in Firefox. Watch the video to see how it works.

Drag
Autoplay: ON Autoplay: OFF

Go to addons.mozilla.org and search for SimpleSearch. While it's still in the experimental stage, you'll have to log in to use it.

After you've installed the add-on, go to a page on the Web and highlight a word. Right click and highlight the search option.

Choose the search engine you want.

And you'll be taken to that search.
