  • (2022-03-01) Christian Stanley: Exactly what I wanted
  • (2020-02-19) Alexandte RFST: Very good addon. Would be cool if it was in a popup and not in a new tab each time we search for a word.
  • (2019-07-18) Jeong-hun Sin: Does anyone else experience weird page refresh or scrolling after installing this extension? That is, when the page is idle, sometimes the page refreshes itself for no reason, and scrolls to a different place. I am not 100% sure if this extension is the cause, but I have suspicions. All I wanted a simple extension that adds "Wiktionary" in the selection context menu, so I have no complaints about the functionality. But I'm tentatively giving it 3 stars.
  • (2019-03-26) G. O.: I am a native Chinese who also needs to look for words in Wiktionary, usually for their dated or archaic or rare uses. Pro: - quick right click search feature Con: - Can't belive you're not allowed to search words from English Wiktionary pages but the Chinese pages, and when you try to configure the setting in the button, there is nothing but meaningless ASCII code thing. If you're not an English spoken guy, you're highly possible gonna jump to your language page.
  • (2018-12-23) Josef H.: It's a shame that you never thought of adding support for Unicode. Without it, it's virtually impossible to select any language that contains special characters in its name.
  • (2018-06-11) Yanis L: Lacks configurable hotkey.
  • (2016-12-18) Anton Bryl: Really handy for the languages covered well on Wiktionary.
  • (2016-11-13) Ben Duncan: It does what it says, giving you a word prompt if you put the button or you can right click on words in a page, and it redirects to wiktionary. It would be nice if you could choose a language to go to though, so you can go to fr.wiktionary.org rather than en.wiktionary.org for example.
  • (2016-01-23) Justin Stone: Simple right click to go to Wiktionary page on a word, just what I wanted
  • (2014-11-18) Casper Bredgaard: This is pretty much just a bookmark. Add the Google Dictionary functionality and this would be great.
