Google search from inside emacs

Artur Malabarba, of endless parentheses, has a nice package called google this which provides a set of functions for querying google from emacs.

Here is my code to install google-this

;; google-this
(use-package google-this
  :config
  (google-this-mode 1))

The package provides a set of functions under the prefix C-c /. The simplest is C-c / RET which prompts you for a search in the minibuffer, with a default search string based on the text around the point. This sounds trivial, but I find myself using it all the time as it is more efficient than switching to my browser, moving to the search box and trying the search string.

The full list of commands is:

C-c / SPC google-this-region
C-c / a google-this-ray
C-c / c google-this-translate-query-or-region
C-c / e google-this-error
C-c / f google-this-forecast
C-c / g google-this-lucky-search
C-c / i google-this-lucky-and-insert-url
C-c / l google-this-line
C-c / m google-maps
C-c / n google-this-noconfirm
C-c / r google-this-cpp-reference
C-c / s google-this-symbol
C-c / t google-this
C-c / w google-this-word
C-c / <return> google-this-search
