  • (2020-02-27) Snehil Agrawal: A better support to store the word history and retrieve it is needed. Currently it dumps the last 220 stored words in a crude CSV format with no spacing which makes it hard to read. It would be excellent if we can refer to the search history right in the browser.
  • (2020-02-25) Kostas Margiavičius: Would appreciate if you added an option to change the translation language in both mini windows.
  • (2020-02-25) Kimhoo Chan: Auto pronunciation would be a great function after displaying pop-up

  • (2020-02-19) Михаил Егоров: Отличный переводчик, настроил на нажатие Alt и он работает. Если нужно подробнее то одним шелчком переносит в Google Translate. Никакой лишней шелухи.

  • (2020-01-12) Alex Wade: the Google Dictionary extension is a life saver. While writing if I am unsure this extension saves me time and keeps me focused.
  • (2020-01-11) BillyBobRobJob USA: Excellent plugin! It would be great to retrieve technical definitions in Medicine and STEM as well as being able to retrieve acronyms relevant to the context of the webpage. Another small improvement would be the ability to define words in dialogue boxes while typing.

    When using chromebook, chrome os 76, I can no longer use the google chrome dictionary extension. When I highlight a word it says 'Searching....' and never finds the definition. When I type the word into the extension it also says 'Searching....' and never resolves. I can use this extension on my pc but not chromebook so I know it is not a network issue.

  • (2019-12-24, v:4.0.8) Jakub Drahorád: Simple Fix for deprecated "element.createShadowRoot()"
    In script "content.min.js" just replace this part of code: this.D=this.b.createShadowRoot?this.b.createShadowRoot():this.b.webkitCreateShadowRoot(); with: this.D=this.b.attachShadow?this.b.attachShadow({mode: 'open'}):this.b.webkitCreateShadowRoot(); and the extension will be working again ;)

    I don't like to use another heavy weight application for reading PDFs. My default is Chrome for PDFs, even I watch videos within chrome. Anyways, when I select a word from PDF, this extension can't catch it. Can't this feature be added?
  • (2019-12-15, v:4.0.8) Wesley Griffiths: Code being depreciated?
    This extension needs to be fixed. It causes an alert in the code of the sites I visit. "[Deprecation] Element.createShadowRoot is deprecated and will be removed in M80, around February 2020. Please use Element.attachShadow instead. See https://www.chromestatus.com/features/4507242028072960 and https://developers.google.com/web/updates/2019/07/web-components-time-to-upgrade for more details." It's a great extension that I get a lot of use out of, so I hope it gets some attention from Google.
  • (2019-12-12, v:4.0.8) William G. Hayes: Google Dictionary ext no longer functional in Canary.
    Double-clicking on a word no longer provides a pop-up definition, nor does highlighting a word and clicking on the extension icon provide a definition. I really miss this extension!
  • (2019-12-09, v:4.0.8) Andrey Balashov: API Deprecation warning

  • (2019-12-08, v:4.0.8) D A: I Was Having the Same Problem
    I tried numerous steps. I uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. I shut the browser down and opened it again. I finally downloaded Dictionarist instead and when that didn't work, I tried clearing my cache. Now they both work.
  • (2019-12-02, v:4.0.8) Hasan H. Gürsoy: Corrupt plugin
    Hi there, this plugin wants to be repaired randomly. I assume that moving the plugin to the invisible part of the plugin list causes this issue. It's certainly not the main reason but at least one of the reasons. Sincerely yours Hasan
  • (2019-12-01, v:4.0.8) Ricardo Salta: Just not working anymore. Only when using the extension button.
    And even then, it doesn't look up the selected word, if I have any. It has an empty field, and I need to enter the word and click Define. Then this works. But the functionality I've always loved this extension for, double-clicking a word and getting an extension, is kaput. I've tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling. No change. I have many more extensions, I wonder how could I eventually debug to find a conflict, because I am pretty sure it must be something like this, but I don't know exactly where to start.
