In Chrome /Chromium there is a context menu option to search Google for selected text which opens a new tab. Is it possible to some how do this but open the tab in the background?


This extension does exactly what you want.

I've been using a chrome extension for a while and give me much more than that. You can configure the searching for whatever web site you desire.

Selection Search Extension

Any way, you can hold down the ctrl key when you click for searching as said in this post.
