    Default Two useful plugins have not yet been devolped...

    Users of opera can attach a shortnick name for a frequent visited webpage, the nickname is usually short such as wk for "wikipedia", fc for "facebook". this mechanic is of great value and provide convenience.

    Is there a possibility of developing this one?

    Plus, in opera, if you hightlight a text, after right click the mouse, there popups a hotclick panel, in which you can select one of all the search engines you have to search with.

    I have digged out in this forum a "context search" plugin, saddly it only applies to wikipedia.

    The same is possible in Chrome, it is described in "Chrome Help"
    I have looked it up ans copied it here, but the best it to read it here: http://goo.gl/UIRb

    or press F1

    Search: Add, edit, or remove search enginesPrint
    Google Chrome automatically saves a list of the search engines you've encountered while browsing the Web. For example, if you visit http://www.youtube.com, the browser auto-detects and adds the YouTube search engine to your list of search engines that you can access from the address bar.

    Add, edit, or remove search engines

    Follow these steps (for Windows):

    Click the Tools menu.
    Select Options.
    Click the Basics tab.
    Click Manage in the "Default search" section.
    Use the buttons in the dialog to manage the search engines in the list. You'll need to provide the following information for each search engine:

    Name: Nickname for the search engine.
    Keyword (optional): Fill out this field if you want to create a text shortcut for the search engine. Learn more about keyword searches below.
    URL: Type the web address for the search engine into this field. See instructions on finding this URL
    How to access search engines

    Tab to search
    Start typing the web address of the site you want to search in the address bar. If Google Chrome has a record of the site's search engine, it automatically offers you the option to search that site. Press Tab to choose the search engine, type your search term, then press Enter to see search results from the site.

    To condense what's said above:

    Click on the wrench icon, then select options. Under "Basics", click the "Manage" button in the "Default Search Engine" section. Press "Add" in the box that appears. Then type in a name e.g. "Facebook". Then in keyword type in e.g. "fc". Then in URL e.g. "http://www.facebook.com". Then click OK.

    Then just type "fc" into the address bar and hit enter to go straight to Facebook.

    Context Search does not ONLY apply to wikipedia. It works on pretty much every website (without the google extensions, and about:* pages) link

    Maybe he means that it only has wikipedia as a search option. Well if you go to the extensions page (wrench icon, then extensions) youll find an options icon for the context search extension. You can add new search engines there. For the URL you can just use the ones from chromes search engine list, just copy the URL verbatim.

    Thanks everyone! It works!

    And I start to think another feature. Google search engine provide "site" syntax, through which you can search key words in specific site, and this function is frequently used when some websites are so large and information is dense. Someone did write a plug-in of opera browser, with which one can search key words in the website where your currently visiting web-page is, just by highlighting the keyword and selecting a button named " search in this site...", so he needn't open anther tab and direct to google and write the whole search sentence. Can I do this through "Context Search" plug-in of chrome, how can I do it?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately no.
    The function could be added easily with just one line to his content script (mine does it now) and Ill put a comment on his extension at chromeextensions.org about it.
    In the meantime you could always use a bookmarklet like this one....
