Extending Context Menu of existing applications



Is it possible to create an application that can extend the context menu of existing applications.


e.g. extend the browser context menu so that if a user selects a word in a browser tab, a custom menu option will be visible that allows the user to performs actions on the selected word, phrase etc ..


Or even more generic if any word/phrase is selected the custom menu option becomes visible.

If the user selects the custom menu option the application is launched to handle this action.


Can this be done in webworks ?

Native API ?


Thanx, h.
