Instead of limiting yourself with Google search under your context menu. With Context Search, extension for Mozilla Firefox browser, you can turn your search menu into a drop-down list while choosing the search engine after you have highlighted your search terms.

Search Context

  • Direct searching
  • All in one search tool with more varieties of search engines
  • Faster when you need to search for images
Interface: RatingsRatingsRatingsRatingsRatings
Usefulness: RatingsRatingsRatingsRatingsRatings
Ease of use: RatingsRatingsRatingsRatingsRatings
Performance:
RatingsRatingsRatingsRatingsRatings
Value: RatingsRatingsRatingsRatingsRatings

Note: You need Add to Search Bar extension to add search engine of your choice.

This extension is one of my favourite and it is one that I cannot live without. With Google Image search added to my search bar using Add to Search Bar extension, I can search for images directly after I highlight the search term. After you select a search engine from the drop-down list, it will open the search in a new tab. Nonetheless, there is no settings or options you can set (etg open search in current tab).
