It is as simple as that. No Ads, no extra buttons, and no option menu.

  • (2023-11-02) Christy List: I used to like it, for the most part worked and was helpful, although when it was working, occasionally it would not recognize a word that you would think it should have. But lately it doesn't work at all, the extension is still there along with the permissions, but it just disappeared from the right click menu. I am about to remove it.
  • (2023-07-02) Null Inactive (No Email Service): The suggestions are almost entirely unhelpful or useless. A singular contextual use list of alternatives with an extremely limited set of erratically grouped choices. This limits the extension to words with singular meaning only and even then the options given are only partially useful at best. For example the word 'submit' shows you /some/ of the 'present/offer' context of synonyms, but not the 'comply/endure' context synonyms. Words with dual meaning have a 50% chance at most of offering semi-appropriate, context relevant alternatives, nonetheless the negligible diversity of the selection are usually unsuitable even then. For the plethora of English words with three or more contexts of synonym though, this already barely minimum-viable-product becomes completely devoid of purpose. Making this effectively redundant to even attempt to use at all. The word 'written' has 8 different contextual uses, there are over 100 different synonyms for it in total - this extension shows you only 9 possible choices, no more than 2 of which are even the most sensible or useful synonyms to suggest. Out of the 30+ common words I tried, in every case I ended up selecting a more appropriate synonym from Thesaurus[dot]com instead of any of the choices presented via this deficient extension. If the no more than 1 to 3 logical alternatives shown in each case are not enough for you, then the ONLY other option is to search Urban Dictionary. Which having tried that now - is honestly the worst place to seek appropriate synonyms from. I attempted to use Urban-D as a source for synonyms (or antonyms) out of morbid curiousity, but it is indeed a complete waste of time, entirely unsuited to creative grammatical inspiration. This is a highly misleading and fake extension, as for the "just like you are used to it in Microsoft Office" part of the description - that is nothing more than flat out deceptive false advertising. This isn't even 10% as useful as the MS Office experience. This is so awful that frankly making that claim is actually libellous and defamatory, by implying that the MS Office experience is anywhere near as woefully abysmal as using this extension is. Anyone satisfied with this "offering" cannot posess any actual literary skill to begin with, this is the food stamp version of synonym appetite. I shouldn't have ignored the obvious red flag of the number 4 in place of the word in the title. Any dimwit still using such banal and trite 'leet speak' clearly has no actual linguistic intelligence and therefore no ability to produce anything that is even remotely capable of improving written communication. Even as reductive and unimaginative as Grammarly is, it's still vastly superior to this. After trialling an extensive number of options recently, Synonym 4 Right Click is by far the absolute worst. Relying on this is more likely to produce an inferior result than never searching for a synonym at all. The 4-star rating is only explained by the dim-witted plebeian masses for whom Urban Dictionary is sadly the pinnacle of intelligent discourse. TL;DR: This extension is nothing more than a 2-click gateway to Urban Dictionary with a cheap and almost entirely useless facade on top. It poorly attempts to imitate useful synonym functionality, but in reality is likely to only significantly diminish the quality of your writing. The developer is clearly either an ignoramus or a charlatan - or more likely both.
  • (2022-09-22) Master Chief: Not working. Synonyms are not provided but instead, only provides an option to visit the "Urban Dictionary" site.
  • (2022-08-23) Reza Mohammadi: Very useful.
  • (2022-01-24) Tom Hayden: Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.
  • (2021-10-25) Nhân Phạm: really useful and simple!
  • (2021-01-17) Sheriff K: Full of adds!
  • (2020-07-14) Mary Shutters: I just installed this so I haven't had too much experience but so far it is exactly what I was looking for to replace the synonym functionality of what was in Outlook that I can now use in native Gmail. It works like a charm so far and I so grateful!!! It was very easy to add the extension. Just remember to double left click to highlight the word, then right click to see synonyms. Quick and easy. THANK YOU!!!!!
  • (2020-01-30) Craig McLaurin: I like the ability to check alternative meanings, which this provides. It is also a nice way to improve my vocabulary.
  • (2019-11-07) AMIRUL ISLAM: All URLs across all subdomains (m., www. ...)
  • (2019-05-04) sihem bendaoud: null
  • (2019-01-03) The Filmmaker: Irrelevant suggestion occurs. Useless tool.
  • (2018-08-26) A. A. Attanasio: The program simply stopped working after a couple of days. Now I have to find another program that is more reliable.
  • (2018-04-21) Subburaja Pandian: Very useful. I am using it in my day by day activity.
  • (2018-01-30) Scott Reinwand: Word suggestions are pretty limited and the suggestions seem somewhat unintelligent. Replace "good" with great? Bully? Cracking? As long as we're going pure UK English why not include Brilliant?! Another annoyance is that anytime you choose to replace a word, the replacement adds an additional space beyond the highlighted word so you have to erase the added space every time to avoid a double space. Meh.
  • (2017-12-03) Jo Brown Flavour: I'm a long-time regular devotee user of Thesaurus and I'd certainly give this extension 4 stars as it serves you its same product quality with same own data but more languages and step-further options would've been highly a better suitor than 2-in-1 merge extension with Urban Dictionary which should have its own as well with refined work toward its own services. Still a winning 3-Star though, but must push things further (like Google for Ex.) if wanting to reach highger
  • (2017-11-08) Abdulaziz Alotaibi: excellent
  • (2017-11-03) desmormos: I was using a writing program that costed five dollars per month to provide a worse version of this free extension, so- thank you! It works fine in general Chrome and in Chrome apps.
  • (2017-10-01) Donna Carter: I used it once and it worked great. Next time I tried to use it, it does not appear in the drop down menu of a right click. Yet when I go back into apps extensions it says it is installed and the icon is on my toolbar. Anyone else experience this and find a solution?
  • (2017-08-17) emre b.: ingizceye olan hakimiyetini ileri taşıyacak, okumana devinim kazandıracak ve hız katacak, ikamesi zor ve kullanımı pratik.
  • (2017-08-09) Ross Wehner: The plugin is confusing words, or doesn't have suggestions. When the plugin doesn't have synonym suggestions it suggests Urban Dictionary, which isn't a helpful writing tool.
  • (2017-07-27) Tseng Alex (STPI曾李源): 這應用程式很好用,看英文文章遇到不懂的字時,可用此先查~讚!
  • (2017-07-25) Ember N: i like it so far. i don't need to click out of the window i am working on. will update if i will remove app for some reason.
  • (2017-06-03) Sean Abel: Wish that it worked in Google Docs, as that was my reason for installing. Please add that function and it would be a 5 star.
  • (2017-04-23) Mgameing: not even a thesaurus!! Just trying to promote somthing else like FBook or somthing
  • (2017-02-12) Prince Patel: Great extension, I found what i want.
  • (2017-02-12) Palko J: It's nice but it doesn't work on Google Docs, that is a major bummer.
  • (2017-02-07) euros ST. (eurossocial): Great App and very convenient! It shows the words on a pop-up window, without the need of open new tabs or pages!! :-)
  • (2016-12-25) Minh Phat Nguyen: best ever
  • (2016-10-19) Prasad Hews: does what i need...
  • (2016-10-13) Benjamin Kroo: I wish it was better because the functionality is exactly what I want. It doesn't work for all sites, for example, I just tried it out when writing an email, and when i tried using it on a words in a review for this extension, they gave the same results I got for the email even though they weren't the same words. I wish it had better synonyms, and not just "similar words" sometimes.
  • (2016-09-24) Dave Stuart: Installed this to assist quickly with the understanding of words, and to find an alternate word when required. At first i thought it was great, but then it becamse apparent that sometimes it seems to stop searching/stop working/work incorrectly. I tried 3 completely separate words a moment ago and all of them came back with the same suggestion. Unfortunately this now means i do not trust this app.
  • (2016-09-06) Duc Can: Enough to use
  • (2016-08-31) Gar-Chun Lee: Works great on standard XML websites, but appears not to work in Google Doc's which is a shame.

Latest issues

  • (2022-11-12, v:2.0.3) Jeremy Hastings: Not safe
    I wish not to install the extension because it appears to provide access to all of the info on the webpages I visit. Permission: "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit" If there was a way to only get access to data that I highlighted-and-rightclicked-and hovered over "synonyms", I would love to install this.
  • (2022-11-12, v:2.0.3) mimi strawberry: Privacy Policy
    Where is the privacy policy posted for this? I find it both surprising and unacceptable that there's no legal document besides the "No Tracking" claim on the description. How can an application, which seemingly has been running for a few years at this point, not have any information posted on their data collection and processing practices? That's a shame. In theory, this idea looks seamless and useful. In practice, your choice of not disclosing the privacy policy is misleading, and it ruins the image of an otherwise perfectly useful tool. I can see that there are more comments on this made previously, why has there not been an update yet?
  • (2022-08-26, v:2.0.3) Avrohom Jacks: Google Docs
    The thesaurus is not working on my Google Docs documents. Works everywhere else. Is this a known problem? I went out of Chrome and came back in. Didn't work
  • (2021-05-30, v:2.0.3) Alice Ward: THE INFORMATION YOU PROVIDED WITH THE SAMPLES!
    The info you provided was put on the screen so quickly and did not stay long enough for me to read it. You should allow more time for the customer to read it.
  • (2020-07-31, v:2.0.3) Brendan J Boehr: Privacy policy?
    Is there a privacy policy? how do you use our data?
  • (2020-06-19, v:2.0.3) Joan Mershon: Problem- not working

  • (2017-10-01, v:2.0.3) Donna Carter: why doesn't it show?
    I used it once and it worked great. Next time I tried to use it, it does not appear in the drop down menu of a right click. Yet the icon is on my toolbar and when I go back into apps extensions it says it is installed.
