I am not able to get the ACTION_WEB_SEARCH to work correctly, does this require any permissions on the AndriodManifest.xml?

This is my code:

 String q = edittext.getText().toString();
 Intent myIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_WEB_SEARCH, Uri.parse(q));

Any help would be much appreciated.

Platform 2.0.
