Does safari has an extension like this Chrome extension called Context Menu Search? It enables user to search highlighted text from the context menu.

It should be something like this:enter image description here


I needed something similar too!

So look up: CustomSearch. It's highly adaptable by using the integrated CustomSearch Entry Editor.

"CustomSearch allows you to easily send the selected text to one of up to eight search engines — right from the toolbar or a contextual menu. CustomSearch includes search entries for Wikipedia, Google, Bing, and Amazon."

It has built-in Dictionary & Search with... on the right-click menu

I think the Search with… defaults to whatever your chosen search engine is.

The dictionary can also be triggered using Cmd ⌘ Opt ⌥ D in many other apps/text areas.

  • I've added an screenshot of what I am looking for. I hope i can choose from search engines from the menu. – Fish Monitor Jan 8 '16 at 12:34
