Great applet that works very well with Cinnamon 21.1! I offer French translation.

Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3 - the hotkeys work BUT they don't actually pop up the box to show what I am typing. So if I hit the hot keys and start typing blind, then hit enter - google will pop up a result. Would be great to be able to visually see the applet is responding and to be able to see what I am typing. Otherwise - it works - and its the only thing like it I have found so I'll deal with it till its fixed.

Poderia ter uma janela que aparece a pesquisa e quando clicar que abria no navegador. Também poderia fazer pesquisas de arquivos no computador(marcando uma caixa de pesquisa no computador.

Doesn't work after upgrading to Linux Mint 19.1
Very neat little applet. Could use the capability to assign a keyboard shortcut.

Added the capability to assign a keyboard shortcut. Default shortcut is `Ctrl+Alt+F`
