  • (2017-10-21) Liam Bulkley: It will bring the proper definitions, but it doesn't do so with a pop-up, so you are removed from the context.
  • (2014-10-17) Cenfit liu: Can you allow users to custom his/her search engines other than default ones you have given; or can you allow users to specify a google search engine in his/her own country, like google.au, google.jp, google.co.uk? Thanks.

    How can I remove this addon?
  • (2018-02-26, v:2.0.1) Shawkang Wu: turn off thesaurus option
    can you turn off the option? I just want to know the meaning of a word. I don't want to have to click again for choosing dictionary over thesaurus every time. tks.
  • (2016-08-12, v:2.0.1) Travis Heeter: console.log(s)
    Can you build a feature to turn off all the console.log(s) this extension produces by default? It's a bit ridiculous.
  • (2013-10-31, v:2.0) k9mama27: Define not working
    It's not working. When I right click on a word and select "define" I get search results instead with a message at the top stating "The search option you have selected is currently unavailable." It's been happening for a while now and I just went into "Extensions" to see if it was still there. It is, but, it's not working. :( Really love the app and use it all the time but a little bummed that it hasn't been for a while now. >>SAD FACE<< A. Fowler
