Overview

Hover over Chinese characters for definitions, images, examples, visualizations, radicals, frequencies, HSK info, & more

Chinese Console - Popup Chinese-English Dictionary is a tool to help you read, explore, and better understand the Chinese characters in any web page on the web. By hovering over words and characters you are interested in, detailed information will be shown in the console area. The information that Chinese Console shows includes: - Mandarin Chinese-English Dictionary definitions - Simplified and Traditional characters - Pinyin tone pronunciation - Animated stroke order digrams - A list of example words that a character occurs in - A list of similar characters (eg 大犬六穴太尢) - Character radical composition information - View images associated with the searched word - Colorize all characters on the page by frequency in the language - Colorize all characters on the page by frequency on the page - A flexible layout (display in corners, or on left or right side - Floatable mode, where a box of information follows your cursor - Colorized themes, including light mode, dark mode, "morning", "ocean", "forest" & "candy" - Minimized mode - Navigate a history of searched words - Search by typing interface - HSK level information - Configurable to display only info you want - Global and Site-specific configuration - Configurable hot-key (alt, ctl...) to activate console You can color the characters on the page according to how common (green) or uncommon (red) the character is so you know how "important" the character is. Using this "distribution frequency" you can colorize characters by frequency in the language as a whole (based on a Chinese web corpus), or the page being viewed. Another common way to know how "important" or "difficult" a character is is by using the HSK level (汉语水平考试 (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi ), Chinese Proficiency Test administered by the Hanban. Chinese Console Characters are formed by radicals, and Chinese Console decomposes characters into radicals for better understanding. At the touch of a button you can view images associated with the word you've looked up to get a better idea of what that word means on the web. You can also customize where the console appears on the page so that your content is always easily viewable. If you don't need to display some of this information the console can be configured to show only what you need. You can also maintain a separate configuration (position, and info display) both globally (all pages) and per-site if needed. The console uses a 'hot-key' to activate it's searching, to stay out of the way of normal page interactions. This key is configurable by you in a variety of ways for both Mac and PC users. ROADMAP - Integrate Extension with a website backend so users can track their own words and pages. CHANGELOG Version 1.4.2 - Added animated stroke order diagrams for characters Version 1.4.1 - Added colored theme support Version 1.4.0 - Character information is now shown for sub-words and all characters. In previous version results for 共同体 would only show info for 共同体 and 共. In version 1.4 results will show 共同体, 共同, 共,同 and 体. - A link to donate to support the project is now provided. - Long words (5 chars or more) now show in smaller text, to prevent overlapping display.

Very nice and promising extension, it is evident there has been put a lot of though in the creation of it. I wish you would continue to make fellow Mandarin learners happy by updating and improving on your work. As a student with no money to go around, I can't do anything but encourage you with this review.
