Is there a way to add "Search [search engine] for [highlighted text] in new container tab" option to the right click menu?

I would like to be able to highlight texts in one container and search for them in another container (or no container) from the right click menu. Is there a way to add this functionality?

Some additional points: i) Currently, if I highlight a text and right click and search Google for it, the new tab opens in the same container (or no container). I don't want to remove this option, I just want to add the option to be able to do this search in any container I have available. ii) Functionality I want is very similar to how it works when you highlight links, where you have option to open in new tab or open in new container tab you choose. iii) I don't want to assign all my searches to a specific container by forcing "always open [domain] in [container]". For example, I already have a Google container, I do not want searches to go to that container by default, I want to be able to choose where they go. Assigning all Google links to a container makes it hard for me to segregate searches from containers where I use other Google services. iv) The way I do this currently is by highlighting text and then opening a new tab in a container and then searching separately, which is inconvenient. v) If this feature doesn't exist, is it possible to request this feature? How would one go about doing that?

Thank you very much for any help. This is something that's been bugging me a bit lately.
