User reviews
Love this extension, great job on making it. The only undesired function that i find irritating, is that the extension treats selected texts the same way as a link. When I select a text, and want to drag that text (intended or by accident), the page wiil redirect to the domain appended with the selected text as the URL query. Would love to see this behaviour fixed. Otherwise still a great extension, worth of 5 stars!

Perfection! Thank you for restoring the functionality that I had gotten used to in my work flow. I felt crippled after Google decided what was best for its users, without giving us any options.
