10.6: Google search in Terminal contextual menu

I haven't tested this one. Note that the Google Search Service does already show up in the Services menu in Terminal without performing this change.

I noted the same thing as soon as I read the hint. Just curious - why is this posted? It seems unnecessary and potentially dangerous.

10.6: Google search in Terminal contextual menu
Authored by: riepel on Feb 28, '11 06:37:47PM

services menu != contextual menu

I spend hours per day in Terminal and I really missed the Terminal contextual menu "Search in Google" entry that existed until 10.6. "Thrilled" doesn't even begin to describe how happy I am to have it back.

Bonus: Implementing this hint brought back the "Look up in Dictionary" entry too.

Thanks you for this very useful hint.
