Search Netflix

What it does: Takes the current selected text and sends it to Netflix.com as a search string. If no text is selected a prompt window will pop-up allowing you to manually enter a term. Also, if you are browsing The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) when you select it the title of the page will be used as the search string.

What it is:

is_imdb=/\.imdb\.com/;
if(is_imdb.test(document.domain)){
  q=document.title.split(' - IMDb',1);
}else{
  if(getSelection()!=''){
    q=getSelection();
  }else{
    void(q=prompt('Enter search term (Netflix)',''));
  }
}
if(q){
  window.open('http://netflix.com/WiSearch?v1='+escape(q));
}
