1. Request

It would be nice, if would be possible search selection text in search engine, Google Search for example.

2. Justification

If I read a book:

    I constantly need to find out more information about words or phrases, which I do not know.

Now I need: select text → copy text → paste text in browser search bar → press Enter. It may take a lot of time.

3. Steps to reproduce

User open any book in any supported format in SumatraPDF → user select any text, for example, Sasha Autumn → user press any shortcut.

4. Expected behavior

https://www.google.com/search?q=Sasha%20Autumn page open in user default browser.

5. Examples on other apps

Demonstration of expected behavior in Sublime Text 3 with Sublime Bang Search package.

Demo

Thanks.

Seems like a niche feature. I made it as a helper script in this gist SumatraHelper_google_selection.ahk
