Hi Raman, as far as I can tell, gweb-google-at-point only wirks in emacs 23. Two reasons I could determine are that the "def" argument to completing-read cannot be a list of defaults in emacs 22 and that there is no complete-with-action in emacs 22. Otherwise, the feature is really nifty and works great in emacs 23. Best regards, Lukas T. V.
