  • (2021-10-21) Dimosthenis Arkoudeas: Really helpful . Works as expected and lighting fast
  • (2021-02-03) Vincent Lee: i would've liked to use this more but it doesn't work on most of the writing sites i frequent, like asianfanfics or tumblr. though i'm happy to say it works on wattpad and archive of our own. :) just sad that it doesn't work on my other favorite platforms.
  • (2020-12-28) Benjamin A. Dev: I have to say, in my own very biased opinion, I do love Simply Synonyms. Not quite sure why Google lets me review my own extension but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ As well as leaving a review here, don't be afraid to reach out with additional feedback at <https://synonyms.bweb.app/contact>
  • (2020-12-26) Marharols: Definitely underrated, it would be handy if it had a right click ability so that its easier to get straight to the dictionary.
  • (2020-07-31) Brendan J Boehr: So far so good! It only works on editable text fields (by default) - but this can be changed. Works as advertised and is OPEN SOURCE!! (All the other thesaurus extensions... who knows what they do in the background??)

  • (2021-01-21, v:0.3.7) Jodi Stammer: Nothing happens
    I installed the extension, selected a word, right clicked, chose Simply Synonyms Tools, then Search thesaurus/dictionary and nothing happens. I tried closing and reopening Chrome and that didn't help. Also, it would be nice to have it right in the right click menu without having to click through a menu.
