Missing from Context meny

Why does the "search imdb" kind of option does not appear in Vivaldi which is a Chromium based browser same as MS Edge and Google Chrome?

Shortcut Key or Bulk Search Option

1) Is there a way to assign a shortcut combination once I highlight the desired text? For example, highlight "Batman" and click "Ctrl + M" to get the results?

2) Any chance for a bulk search option? I add a lot of movies at a time to my collection and searching one movie at a time takes a long time. A bulk search would be awesome.

Torrents

Torrent filenames typically include dots instead of spaces eg Alice.Fades.Away.2021.1080p.WEBRip.x265-RARBG
Can you make it the default, or an option, to convert dots to spaces before passing the text to IMDB as the dots often confuse IMDB's search. Thanks

About right click IMDB search

Hi, does this extension work if I right click on a movie in my movie folder? The examples given only show highlighted text on a website. Thanks!

Right click IMDB search

Hi,
Does this work if I right click on a movie that is listed in my movie folder or can you only use it when browsing the web?

Encode '&' in search string to %26 etc

Just a quick fix, so you can also search for "Fast & Furious" etc.
in Line "url : "http://www.imdb.com/find?=all&q="+encodeURIComponent(search_target),"
produces
"Fast%20%26%20Furious"

complete function:
function doSearch (search_target, tab)
{
chrome.tabs.create( {
url : "http://www.imdb.com/find?s=all&q="+encodeURIComponent(search_target),
selected : true,
index : tab.index + 1
} );
}

Permissions

Hi, I'd like to add this extension but when I go to install it a message says it can: "Read and change all your data on the websites that you visit" Does this mean it will read passwords?
