Control click selection for Google search in Safari 0.60 Web Browsers
In the new version of Safari, I just noticed that if you highlight any text and control- (or right-) click on it, you can choose to search Google for the term that is selected. I'm pretty sure this wasn't present in the last build. It doesn't work with links, but it's still pretty handy.

How good is this?

Along with form-filling and keychain integration this was the most useful thing I had ever come across in a browser (Chimera) and was a sore omission from Safari. Roll on the other features.

Are you saying that Chimera has the contextual menu Google search command too? I'm using the latest nightly build and it's not there for me.

You can also open addresses from the contextual menu if your viewing a text file or the address isn't set as a link.
