Hi Shemer NS,

This is an amazing tool. Thank you.
Very easy to search your favorit browser for help on a selected word.

Great product that works with only 1 hiccup that I can currently live with. I have posted in the Q & A to see if the only issue I have can be resolved.

  • Default search site based on file extension?
    3 Posts | Last post July 27, 2016
    • Thanks for this great plug-in. I find it to be very useful, but it would be even better if I could assign a default search site based on the extension of the file in which I'm working. For example, when I am editing an HTML file I might want to search on W3Schools; if I'm working in a .cshtml I might want to default to ASP.NET, etc. That way I could just highlight the keyword of interest and search my preferred site via my hotkey assignment.
    • Suggestion sounds good. I will try to implement your suggestion in some time.
      Thanks for the comment.

  • Breaks NuGet
    2 Posts | Last post March 10, 2014
    • Unfortunately this product breaks the NuGet packet manager console. I get errors like
      Exception: Cannot convert the "NuGetConsole.Host.PowerShell.Implementation.ProjectExtensions" value of type "System.String" to type "System.Type".
      Disabling it and PM will work again. 
      Win7 x64
      VS2012 update 3
      NuGet 2.7.4xx
    • This issue seems to be a NuGet issue. Installing Windows Powershell 3.0 resolved this error message.
      Please let me know if you are facing the issue after installing windows powershell 3.0
  • Possible Change to Default Search
    2 Posts | Last post November 03, 2012
    • First I just want to say this product is amazing. 
      What I wanted to ask is if it would be possible to have either of the 2 custom selection boxes (19,20) able to be called as the default search? I ask because I'm in a particular situation, where, I am using Unity3D to design my game and VS 11 to program it. Unity's scripting reference is an online document and I already have one of those custom fields setup to point to it so it looks my keywords up correctly, only problem is I have to use the mouse to do it because there is no option to set the custom field to the hot key.
      I hope this makes sense. Thanks
    • Thanks for you feedback.  I have uploaded Web Search 2.5 with your suggestion. please check.
