  • (2020-12-03) Nathan S.: Just tells me API key doesn't work.
  • (2018-08-12) sirati97: sadly the way it is implemented keeps many other plugins working. instead of just highlighting the word it is put into some tag that marks it as its own unit. this means that google translate for example translates the word independently of the enclosing sentence, or rikaikun doesn't recognise it as a word anymore if only part of the kanji are learned. please fix!
  • (2017-12-12) Ary Borenszweig: Awesome! Now I have an idea of how much kanji/vocabulary I can read in a webpage, so it's a great way to see your "real" level, or your progress.
  • (2016-12-30) Schindler Shadow: Great, but I wish it would color differently based on level.
  • (2016-10-21) Goreae: It works great on japanese websites, but my only real issue is that it doesn't work on the wanikani forums. There's a section there that's exclusively in japanese which is a fantastic resource, and I would love to use the highlighter there, but the extension excludes the wanikani website I assume to prevent it highlighting in reviews or lessons and the like.
