When exception is displayed in console - "Search Online" button ?

When exception is thrown and is shown in the output/JUnit console - many time people just Google for it. How about IDEA providing some nice "Google" button ?

Why would someone do such a strange thing?

It's not strange at ll - I personally had to Google for some weird exceptions thrown. Sometimes it's very useful.

On my todo list is to extend the firefox-search plugin to work with console output (hadn't previously considered JUnit) - this would provide the requsted functionality.

Under IntelliJ 6 the console wasn't accessible - I filed a jira request but i haven't followed up on it.

This would be quite useful feature.

It would be extremely useful for error messages from third-party libraries
and servers.

The console is still not accessible, as far as I'm aware:

http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-12872

so at the moment I can't extend the firefox search plugin as mentioned above.
