Google Chrome's context menu doesn't present a wide array of functions — copy, search, and inspect elements are about all you get when selecting text. The SmartSelect extension, however, lets you set up as many custom search options as you want.
By default, SmartSelect can search selected text with Google, Google Maps/Directions, Dictionary.com, and Wikipedia. Adding new search engines is incredibly simple via the extension's options page. Just name your entry, paste in the appropriate search URL, and add [selected] where the highlighted text needs to appear.
Unfortunately, it's not so easy to add an icon for your newly-created search just now. If you want to add an icon, you'll need to drop a .PNG into the extension's folder (mine is located at C:\Users\Lee\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions\ppogmggnjkiajddfecpjbjicpcobmaef\1.0.2_0\img), and then enter the filename minus the extension on SmartSelect's options screen (download, not download.png).
You may also want to enable the Ctrl+click option to activate the extension; I found that the menu was a bit to eager to spring into action otherwise.SmartSelect for Google Chrome adds customizable searching of highlighted text
