Spotify Player Extension is a free open source browser plugin for Chrome and Firefox. This extension basically adds a mini Spotify player in Chrome and Firefox and then you can use that control playback easily. But it adds some other features in the browser as well such as Spotify search. With the Spotify search, it adds a right-click menu entry just like for “Search in Google”. You can search any selected text in Spotify library for a song. With this option, you will never have to open the Spotify library again and again nor you will have to type a song name to search it.

Search any text in Spotify in a click and then play the song if you find it there in the mini player that it comes with. To play a song, you will have to sign-in via your Spotify account. But to search songs, you don’t need a Spotify account. Just search any text or song name that you come across on any website and this extension will take care of the rest.
