Firefox again:

Went to about:config and replaced
Google:
http://www.google.com/search?lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=

to:

Dictionary:
http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=

realized that lot of times I was searching for word-meanings when
browsing through the pages and often, I did this using right-click on
the highlighted page,googling it and then using the definition link on
the top bar.

So now its reduced to a single step process.

-Time to work on /get knowledge of some extensions. The one discussed
previously and having a google right click menu,wherein on the chosen
word, I could chose to Search web,do Image search,do define: or simply
check the denition from dictionary.com from the right click menu.
Choosing a word and having Google deskbar and using key-combos is a
multiple step process and I dont want to google deskbar or transfer the
highlighted to the FireFox search box at right, I rarely use and often
use the extension to disable it.
