Highlight searching in Firefox 2

For Firefox 2 users if you're reading a web page that mentions a place name and you'd like some more information, then:
  1. highlight the place name;
  2. right-click on the highlighted place name; and
  3. select 'Search Bonzle for...' to search Bonzle for the place name in a new tab.

Highlight searching in this way is particularly good when you come across GPS coordinates. Just highlight them in the page, right click and select 'Search Bonzle for...'

Note: If you've got multiple search engines in your Firefox search bar, then you need to make sure you select 'Bonzle' before you highlight the place name to ensure that the 'Search Bonzle for...' option appears in the pop-up menu.
