Ever want to quickly run a Google search on one of the contacts in your Address Book list? Download our script, and then drop it into the your user folder /Library/Address Book Plug-Ins folder (if this folder doesn’t exist, create it).

Now launch Address Book and control-click on any contact’s phone number. You’ll see a Google Them option in the pop-up menu. Select it to open Safari, load Google’s page, and start searching for your contact’s name. If you want something more interesting than a Google Them label on the pop-up menu, you can change it by editing the words inside quotation marks in the line that reads

return "Google Them"
in the script. (You’ll have to have a phone number entry for your contacts, as you can’t associate a script with the Name field.)
