Small QoL Feature Suggestion: Right click, search Google

Just a small quality of life suggestion. It would be handy to be able to highlight an error message or something in a log and have one of the right click context menu options be "search Google for". This would save me from copying the output and then opening a browser and pasting the search term.

Not a huge deal, of course, but could reduce a few clicks per day

Hi dmaker,

I have captured a feature request on your behalf to add the ability to lookup error messages via web browser (Google) by highlighting and right-clicking on text in the log/output.

We will be sure to post here if a version of SecureCRT is released that supports this functionality. If you would prefer direct notification, please send an email to support@vandyke.com, with ****ATTN: Feature Request, Forum Thread #14108**** in the subject field.

Hey dmaker,

Are you running SecureCRT on Windows? If so, we might have a scripted solution that would serve as a workaround for you to lookup selected text.

Please refer to the attached VBScript:

This has been implemented in a pre-beta version of SecureCRT. Please email me at Maureen.Jett@vandyke.com if you would be interested in trying it.
