Is there a Firefox or Chrome add-on/extension that automatically pops up buttons (Copy, Search) when you select text from a web page? Thus allowing you to avoid the right click button as much as you can.

Something like this:

Next to the highlighted text, two buttons "search" and "copy" are shown

    It doesn't currently have the copy operation, but Selected Search has the search functionality you desire. It also looks trivial to add code to perform a copy operation. If this works for you, I can expand it into an answer. Apr 26 '16 at 6:11
  • You were inspired by using Opera, right? If not, use Opera for this feature. I am actually looking for this in Firefox, too.

  • @MSC Sorry for late reply, I think Opera didn't have that feature when I posted this actually. But it's nice that they implemented the feature exactly like I imagined it.
