What is Search Tool?

Search Tool is an Edge add-on that allows users to easily switch between customized search engines and adds a custom search engine option to the right-click menu. Users can configure various search engines, use shortcut keys or the plug-in pop-up menu to switch between them, and even perform searches directly from the right-click menu.

Just three steps, anywhere to start a search with any engine.

It supports configuring any search engine, similar to the search engine configuration in chrome settings, such as Baidu search, Bing search, JD search, Douban search, headline search, etc. After configuration, support:

  1. shortcut keys switch between search engines. For example, on the Baidu search page, press the shortcut key (configurable) to quickly switch to Google search without reentering the search term, and then press the shortcut key to quickly switch to Bing search.

  2. click the plug-in pop-up menu in the upper right corner (shortcut keys can also be configured) to quickly switch to the specified search engine. If it is on the search engine page, it will automatically bring the search term and jump to the specified search result page; Otherwise, directly jump to the specified search results page.

  3. support the configuration of search engines in the right-click menu. If only one search engine is configured, it is in the top-level menu, or multiple search engines can be configured. After selecting a text, right-click it, and "search for" selected text "using XX" will appear in the right-click menu

User reviews
I really appreciate this extension as it includes a lot of the features I wanted. But there are two things stopping me from giving it a full thumbs-up. The first issue is that I can't get search results to open in a new tab, even though I've turned on 'Popup' in the settings. The other problem is with the icon – it disappears against my dark-themed browser, leaving an awkward empty spot on my toolbar.
