Great and saving time ! The default search option doesn't support Hebrew, unless you change it to the 2nd option "always open https://he.wikipedia.org/"

Worked when I first added it to Chrome. Restarted computer. Didn't work. (It will function as normal until I restart my computer. Then it no longer shows up in the context menu though still enabled in Extensions.)
