Really really cool, czechboy!

I don't understand: why do you need the '=' at the end?
Is it to avoid google queries without anything interesting?

(i removed it and it works perfectly :) )

Yes.. it is not to overwhelm google by queries (I do not know if google can ban you or something) but sure you can make query after every single character pressed

it seems like i need to add 2 things:
let user hit enter to activate the plugin (instead of having to type a special character).
and maybe some kind of way to send the plugin a signal after a short delay of no typing, so that plugins like this could query an online source after a short delay so it wouldnt have to check every character, but could still check "live" without requiring enter to be hit.  what do you think?

mouser: yes, definitelly add the "enter" option!
I like the the idea about the short delay, the problem is that that depends on how fast the person writes, i guess. Probably not easy to do on reality, i think.

Much needed option, in my opinion.

Both ideas are great, probably there could be an TAB option as well (not only enter). Similar to the Launchy one ;)

I really like this plugin but I wish that there was an offline-non google version as well :(
