    The 'search in google' shown in the right-click menu is actually a 'service' offered by the Safari application, and so is not affected by altering the default browser. It can be disabled in System Preferences - Keyboard - Shortcuts - Services  but if shown, will always use Safari.


    If Chrome has nothing similar  - see Chrome: shortcut for "Search With Google"

    Oh, wow that makes sense! Thank you for your reply and tips!!


    The link you gave is for Lion, but ok -- still props/kudos!!!


    I found this Chrome extension:

    "Highlight to Search"
    allows you search keywords by highlighting instead of typing them into a search box

    Google Highlight to Search is a browser extension that helps you search keywords easily.  After you highlight keywords within a web page, you'll see magnifying-glass icon appear below the highlighted keywords. By either clicking on the icon or the keywords itself, search-box with Autocomplete enabled appears for you to search quickly and easily.   By installing this extension, you agree to these terms: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/intl/en/gallery_tos.html This extension uses Google Search, and the data related to the query will be handled as described in Google's privacy policy: http://www.google.com/intl/en/privacypolicy.html


    Pretty awesome!


    Not a right-click-menu-option, but OK let's see (...)
