Update 13 Nov 2004: Now supports FireFox v1.0!
When browsing the web, I sometimes come across a phrase or a word that I don’t really know. Normally, I just ignore it and move on – but it would be nice to be able to quickly look up the definition of the word.
Once installed, 2 new items appear in the pop-up menu when text is selected: Look up definition and Look up definition in new tab . Very exciting, and fortunately large self-explanatory: the extension does not come loaded with documentation.
The plugin uses google‘s define feature to do the lookup. It works remarkably well in most cases.
So – two jobs got done in one. I now have a plugin that is useful, and I know much more about XUL, JScript and RDFs than I did before 🙂
