  • (2018-06-15) mathieu thomas: great except no possibility to resize the window
  • (2017-08-03) Husamulddin: Very good, but needs regular updating. These are some defects: •No highlighting inside of the dictionary pop-up •No accents •Small box Please, update the extension and you'll get the 5 stars.
  • (2017-07-11) E. Groeg: This is rather good. It has meaning for the most obscure and even archaic words, just like Dictionarist (another good extension). My main gripe is that it doesn't allow you to highlight the words within the dictionary window in order to get their definition. Other dictionary extensions feature this, which is a pity. I would prefer if this extension permitted you to highlight words in the dictionary able, so you can get their meaning too. Can you please work on this?
  • (2017-05-08) mehtaz sazid: perfect match with what i was looking
  • (2017-05-03) Linda Steadman: First try and it was perfect, exactly what I've been looking for.
  • (2017-01-22) Chang Kyoo Ko: It dosen't work at all.
  • (2016-11-06) Travis Harris: TL;DR This is not on par with other inline dictionaries, it is way better. What I love about this extension compared to some of the others is that it allows you to define a hot key to use to activate the definition. I often "read with my mouse" and without the hot key, definitions pop up all over the place all the time. I also assume that the dictionary is packed with the extension because the definitions seem to pop up instantly (as long as the page has already finished loading). This is great as long as they access the dictionary efficiently and don't just load it into RAM. My computer has 32GB of RAM, so I don't care, but I hope for everyone else's sake they do it well. The only improvement I would make is to load the extension before page load instead of afterwords because there are some pages that can take a really long time to load, and others that error and the browser never realizes it's done loading. However this is such an insignificant issue that I won't dock a star for it.
  • (2016-10-08) Quoc Dai Ngo Nguyen: I've come across many dictionary-related extension this one so far is the most useful!
  • (2016-10-03) Monero Jeanniton: Love it
  • (2016-05-04) Surendra Ghimire: Better than google dictionary. It works even when you are not in any web page, like when you are in another app. Great work. I give it a 5 stars.
  • (2016-01-11) Jean-Pierre Vertil: Very useful extension. The simplest ideas are often the most impactful...

    Size of popup bubble should be customisable (for me is to small, I'd like to see more lines of text)
  • (2016-12-12, v:1.3) Bogdan Kuzmich: Not Working
    I got an error "an application cou not reach server" And also there is no other languages than english, i see a dropdown with one option. If it's temporary error, please inform me, [email protected] I hope your extension could replace Google's one. Cause I hate when they give me Wiki articles instead of translation.
