    doesn't work , that's why I'm asking .

    EDIT : NM , right ctrl+enter doesn't work, left ctrl+enter does .

    Maybe thats because right ctrl is the host key in VirtualBox .

    @Oli Oops I was assuming you were using Firefox. In Opera (atleast 9.50) just type g followed by your search criteria, opera will do a google search. w followed by anything will lookit up in Wikipedia.
    PS: You can add your own search engines / custom key combinations.

    As for IE: Dude, junk it!
