- (2017-06-21) Roy G: Excellent extension! So much easier to look up words directly in the browser now. Like it that for English words you get both transcriptions and recorded pronunciations. I also keep it open in a separate browser tab so it works as a normal dictionary! Used it for a few days now, very happy so far.
