    Why not just highlight the text, right-click it, then select "search the web" or whatever? It's been a boon to me in Firefox and Opera. (Though I don't like to do all my searching through google, and thus sometimes take the scenic route that you described.)

    BTW, in view of your name, it looks like they'd suit you just fine. That's a big honkin' chunk of padding there! I've been known to throw the occasional backfist, but dayyum.

    I suck at backfists .....
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    yeah notice the distinction I made between a real or proper one and this odd dropping ridge hand that I sneak in on people .

    The padding isn't even that thick on the combat sports glove's thumb ... I like it becouse it keeps teeth off my thumb and my hand from bruising if I catch them wrong(er) .

    I had pain in my thumb for months after jamming my thumb into someones elbow during a botched low hook.

    That little thumb guard can make the difference.

    I just got the "level 3" gloves yesterday. Shipped UPS.

    I only had time to do some bag and pad work to break them in, but they're great so far. Nice, solid leather construction. Substantially more padding than 4 oz. MMA gloves, but less than the level 4s, which probably makes it easier to grapple with them.
