    Hello,

    Two similar problems:

    1. After I select text on a webpage, I click on Search at the top, in the popup menu (see screen capture). This action takes me to the YouTube app. Should it?
    2. If I select text as before and choose Web Search from the browser's menu, nothing happens.
    Screenshot_search.jpg As of right now, the only way to search selected text is to copy first, open a new tab or window, paste into the address bar.

    This is very tedious.
