The Web Search plugin for Eclipse allows you to search for selected text using
a variety of search engines and services, includingGoogle,Google Code Search,Bing,FindJar,
and Stack Overflow. The search engines
can be accessed from the workbench search menu or the context menu any time
text can be extracted from the current selection. Furthermore, the plugin
intelligently handles searching for selected Java artifacts. For example, if
a compilation unit is selected and is searched on Google Code Search, the
Web Search plugin will automatically add language tags to the query and strip
off the file extension (.java).

Literally does NOTHING when selecting text and choosing search from the menu. No configuration options. No errors. No action. Useless.

When I try to find the selected text in a PHP file (I'm also using PDT plugin) It searchs in the web the name of the PHP file (e.g. example3.php) instead the selected text.
Sorry, but I don't know where else can I inform of the bug.
