Recently I did a hack on GNOME Terminal, added the Google search support for it.
I think you may like it, so here comes the article.
As a programmer, the first thing after entering my desktop is “Opening Terminal”. I’m using Ubuntu Desktop, so it’s GNOME Terminal.

When you done some jobs on terminal, the output message may make you confused, you can select the text and right-click, the menu with “Search On Google” is there!
So…How to get the “GNOME Terminal with Google search”?
Think about Ubuntu Tweak! I’ve already included this PPA to Ubuntu Tweak now!
Open Ubuntu Tweak, go to “Source Center”, enable “Google Terminal with Google search support”, Click “Refresh”. You can get it so easily!
