This issue has come up for the last three OS X releases, at least, and it's still here for Lion.

I'm in Apple Mail and select some text. I want to search on the term using Google. Right-click brings up the context menu with "Search in Google." This inevitably results in Safari opening for the search.

Chrome is definitely set as my default browser. Clicking links in email messages brings them up in the proper browser. "Search in Google" does not. Wherever this context menu item is selected (Mail, TextEdit, etc.) it opens Safari instead of the default browser.

As far as I'm concerned, that makes the context menu item useless, since I do not use Safari.

Has anyone figured out a workaround?

Has anyone in the OS X team at Apple paid attention to this issue? It is not new.
