several search engines

I've edited it for several search engines: https://github.com/ll--/anki_addons/blob/a1385c55681bc5d91f3b72e503d9a6870d43132d/reviewer_search_web.py

Not working

This add on is not working in Win 10. I've uninstalled/reinstalled, but nothing changes. The only other add on I have is night mode.

Great add on! You can use it to make additional add ons

I made 3 other add ons based on this (copy text to another .py file and change these lines:)

Wikipedia: SEARCH_PROVIDER = 'Wikipedia'

SEARCH_URL = 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/wiki.html?search=%s'

Google: SEARCH_PROVIDER = 'Google'

SEARCH_URL = 'https://www.google.com/#newwindow=1&safe=off&q=%s'


SEARCH_URL = 'https://www.uptodate.com/contents/search?search=%s'

It does work in my Windows 10

Really nice addon, I´m using it to search Wordreference for selected words after editing the original url. It would be nice to be able to set it up to have several search engines operational at the same time, I just don´t know how to do that.
Thanks a lot.

Just what I wanted.

I had attempted to edit another google search addon to make it instead search google images and being the plebian that I am I could never get it to work, so thank you for making this!
