    Since english is not my native language, I regularly look up a word in an online dictionary, by opening another tab and copy/paste the word. This add-on looks like a real timesaver.

    Good extension but not quite sure about the saving time part I mean just how often are you going to be looking up a word?

  • Toni

    Maybe not so much a timesaver but very covenient, because you don’t have to open another tab all the time and copy/paste what you want to look up. I guess millions of internet users, like me, don’t have english as their mother language, so for us translation-sites come in very handy.
    The last time I looked something up was yesterday, in a dictionary on internet slang. I read: “F2P MMO” right here on Freewaregenius. Huh?! WTF is F2P MMO? ROFL!

    If you want a dictionary working with everything; mark a word anywhere, in any browser, in any document (txt, pdf, doc etc) or a file name on your desktop. Press Ctrl + Shift + d, and you get an instant result from Longman English Dictionary Online. It’s using Longman only and has a fixed key shortcut, but is fast and working perfectly. Small and portable. Have never needed to look elsewhere since I found it a couple of years ago. Recommended!

    This is what I want to happen with ebooks. I don’t want to be taken away. As I read I keep coming up with ideas. That I can’t understand why it hasn’t been implemented in Nooks, or Kindle. Especially this. Although at this time I can’t remember all my thoughts but surely this. Maybe a pronunciation tool which I’d assume would be useful for major words.
