On some web browsers  (such as Maxthon, Cent-browser ), if you've copied some text, you can easily paste&go it by right-clicking the new-tab button.

If it's a URL , it just goes to the website. If not, it performs a search of it.

As it's on the new-tab button, it will do it on a new tab instead of current one.

Please offer such a functionality. Attached a sample of how it looks on Maxthon.

Optionally, also offer an API for addons to handle this operation.

Currently I couldn't find any addon that does it, and even one that does it via a toolbar button of the addon itself. Only similar thing is this one:
But it works only on current tab, and can only handle URLs, meaning it doesn't do search&go.

@Jon Thank you!

Do you know perhaps how I can find all of my requests here on the forum? I don't see how to do it.
I thought it's on "My Subscriptions", but it seems to show only approved ones.

Good idea!

And it doesn't have to be just the "new tab" button, the whole tabs bar is also fine
