    When using the stock Internet browser, I can select text by long pressing text and then a pop-up window shows up allowing you to "copy text", "lookup/search (magnifying glass)" or "share". When you "lookup" the highlighted text it lets you search either Wikipedia, Good Translate or Google Dictionary. How can I get it to just do a normal Google search of the highlighted text? The menu settings only lets you select language.

    Thanks for the reply. I know how to do what you explained...but what I am looking for is a way to add Google search to the Lookup choices. It just seems odd that it would be left out.
