    Hello all,

    I'm "new" to the forum. As in I've been reading for a couple years, and finally came up with something I needed to ask.

    In Snow Leopard, you could do a shortcut where you high light something and press Shift-Command-L and it would Google search no matter what application you were on. In Lion, this shortcut does not work. I looked through the System Preferences to see if I could find it, and I did. The only problem was that it gave me that same shortcut! Can someone help me out with this? It's my only complaint about Lion!!

    CMD+OPT+F works in both SL and Lion.
    Edit: Sorry, that may be in safari only.

    CMD-OPT-F only moves my cursor to the Google Search Bar. The old SL function Google searched whatever you had highlighted.

    Apple Lion ate Google Search

    Google Search is removed from widgets with LION upgrade.
    Surprisingly there are many lookalike Google Search widgets in downloads section. These take advantage of situation Apple not supporting Google widget. They redirect the search traffic through their own site.

    What a pity !!!
