how can i get the selected text of a web page using webKitBrowser?

here is the old code of the default browser:
IHTMLDocument2 htmlDocument = webBrowser1.Document.DomDocument as IHTMLDocument2;
IHTMLSelectionObject currentSelection = htmlDocument.selection;
            if (currentSelection != null)
            IHTMLTxtRange range = currentSelection.createRange() as IHTMLTxtRange;
                if (range != null)
                   string browserSelectedText = range.text;

This is an old post... The solution is very simple : string browserSelextedText = webKitBrowser1.SelectedText;
