Cool Safari-google feature

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I was searching the intarnet today, and I noticed a neat little feature in Safari. If you select some text, and control-click the text, safari gives you the option of searching that text on google. What a nice timesaver.

    Nice catch and it is a very welcomed feature in my books.

    And if you hold down command while right-clicking (or before control-clicking) the google search will open in a new tab or window. Very nice touch.

    Oh that indeed is very cool. That is a feature that I would use for sure...

    ... I used to find myself alot, particularly when on a forum highlighting text copying it and then pasting it in a search!

    Totally cool!

    Hey Trev, I was wondering if you were using a color tool of some sort.

    Now I know.
