This extension lets you select text to search from multiple sources and displays the results in a single pop-up screen.
Search multiple sources such as dictionaries, translation sites and web search as you surf the web. This extension shows results in an in-screen display.
The key concept behind this extension is to reduce search effort in the following two ways:
- Tailor search types to the kind of text selected
- Extract and display only desired content from search sites
Please view the info video first.
- ALT + text selection
Hold the ALT key while selecting text to automatically display results from your selected sites.
(Depending on the kind of text string you select, the results will be shown from sites of different search types, such as dictionary, web search, or translation.)
- Text selection + context menu
Select text and right-click for context menu operation.
Select a search site from the MultiLookup menu item.
(Candidate search sites will differ according to the type of search string you select.)
- Browser action
Click the extension icon in the top right for the quick search box.
Enter text in the search box and hit Enter to display results.
- Site-specific keyboard shortcuts
You can set keyboard shortcuts assigned to specific search sites from the Options Page.
Hit the keyboard shortcut after selecting text on the web to display results from the search site assigned to your shortcut.
(You can assign one keyboard shortcut to several sites at once for multi-search.)
This extension is still in beta mode. There may be significant changes in functionality by ver 1.0.0. If you're okay with that, enjoy!
