    Interestingly, ivey had already posted this technique some time ago. It's a very useful thing. It should be somewhere in the site documentation.


      But, ivey's post doesn't work anymore because apparently vroom is filtering out links like <A HREF="javascript:...">. That's why I couldn't put the code in a link and say "right click this link".

      Oh my god,
      The button is the same for IE(os independant):
      javascript: Q=document.selection.createRange().text; if(!Q){void(Q=prompt('Gimme%20some%20text%20to%20search%20E2!%20Now',' +'))}; if(Q)location.href=''+escape(Q) +;

      "cRaZy is co01, but sometimes cRaZy is cRaZy".
