  • (2020-01-28) Joseph Gonzalez: furigana only works on the extension options page (using chromebook)
  • (2020-01-25) Kyokki Go: すごいですよ! 辞書を引く手間が大幅に減ります。学習には大変に役に立ちます!! 推薦アプリ
  • (2020-01-04) Alex miao: Is there a way to tell apart Chinese or sometimes I end up with chinese with furigana 🤣
  • (2019-10-30) Anna Bia Akkun: It's working! Thank you very much!!
  • (2019-10-23) Selena Hoy: I got this to add furigana to my google doc pretty easily, but the yomikata was totally wrong, even for easy words like 書く and 懐かしい。 Had I used this without checking (or knowing), I would have been greatly embarrassed.
  • (2019-09-13) Zhenna LU: I am sorry, but the furigana is really messy, especially for nouns. I do not recommend.
  • (2019-09-09) Tt Zhao: 找到一个神器,太赞了!
  • (2019-07-25) Danilo Nishimura: This extension will display a hiragana, katakana or romaji close to the kanji. It's quite really helpful for people learning japanese, and kanjis in special. Its easy to configure and easy to use. It can display furigana above the kanji, at the right in parenthesis, or as a tooltip on mouse over. You can select the text size and color, and background color for better reading. For those worried about security, you can block this extension, creating a white list of pages this extension can access, you can allow it to work only when you click the extension button in the interface, or disable at all. By selecting the Kanji, and right-clicking on it, it has a context menu which plays a TTS (text-to-spech) reading of the kanji, and allows a advanced configuration of that kanji, where you can specify a specific substitution for that furigana. The only issue I run into is that it may not work in pages where content gets added as you scroll, which requires a full reload. For me that's a real bummer because nowadays this behaviour is quite common in webpages, and can be really frustrating. If the extension had a way to mark kanjis that had received furigana, and work on new ones that are not marked, would definitely deserve a 5 star rating. Solid 4/5 - Recommended.
  • (2019-07-17) C: Just a few things needed to perfect this: - Persistence (if you enable it, it should stay enabled) - Option to only show the readings for kanji and not for hiragana - More modern design for the icon and settings pages - Firefox port - Public source repository - Specifiy a license
  • (2019-05-28) Stephen Croft: By far the best Furigana extension available. Great features and they all work very well.
  • (2019-03-15) Povar Chan: It's necessary to add the auto-start when open a new page.
  • (2018-12-18) Bruce Wayne: こんなにいいもを作ってありがとうございます!自分は日本語を何年もしゃべってなくてもう忘れたかと思ってた。漢字が半分以上読めなくなってたからなんかフリガナをつけてくれるアプリはないのかなと思ってクロームwebストアで探したらこのアプリを見つけました。丁度このような漢字の上にフリガナをつけてくれるアプリを探してました。大変日本語を学びなおすために役立ちます!
  • (2018-10-17) ONO OOGAMI: 効果が良すぎるのでマジびっくりした
  • (2018-07-19) 墨香: 非常棒的扩展,假名标注比一般的IPA要准确,还可以自定义修正读音,用起来很方便。不过内存占用有点儿高,就算平常不使用的时候也会占200MB+的内存,希望能继续更新优化~
  • (2018-05-31) Peter Tzenov: Not bad at all. One very important feature it lacks is persistent mode - there should be a setting to keep it enabled all the time so that all pages are processed automatically. Keep up the good work!
  • (2018-05-14) Jerry Tu: My initial impression is that it works well. Switching over to this one from IPA furigana since it's more accurate and less prone to just plain buggering up. It would be nice if there was an option for it to display less hiragana than strictly needed (ex お詫び just わ instead of the おわび it writes), but that's a minor gripe overall. The option to exclude kanji based on various learner levels is a nice touch and I imagine it would be useful for those learning Japanese (though I still feel tools like Rikaikun or Yomichan serve better in that regard). Overall, the best furigana inserter I've come across thus far. I'll be using this until I come across a better one, though given that this basically does everything I'm really looking for that would be quite a feat.
  • (2018-04-22) Lindsay: Awesome app. You can add furigana to hanzi in the whole page through one click, and it helps reading news and learning japanese greatly.
  • (2018-03-31) 五十嵐文人: 最高!

    在以下网站出现错误,振り仮名的读音是ふりがな而不是ふりかめい。 https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%8C%AF%E3%82%8A%E4%BB%AE%E5%90%8D
  • (2018-11-08, v: Always on option + support for single page apps
    This could really use an option to always show furigana on websites. And a mechanism to work with single page apps (that are refreshed using Javascript) - currently every second click on the furigana extension icon refreshes the page, which makes it unusable on script-heavy pages.

  • (2018-06-26, v: Gonbechyan: auto start
    is there a way to make the extension automatically turn on on every web page? thank you.
