Overview

Select a word on a website and immediately look up its translation. No tabs, no windows. Guranteed!

This extension allows you to select a word or phrase on a website and to look it up in the LEO dictionary by simply pressing a keyboard shortcut. The dictionary pops up conveniently in the upper right corner inside your browser window. It does not open a new tab or window. The shortcut defaults to Alt+W, however you can set it to virtually any shortcut in the options page. The language defaults to German - English and can also be configured in the options page. Available languages are: English ⇔ German French ⇔ German Spanish ⇔ German Italian ⇔ German Chinese ⇔ German Russian ⇔ German Portuguese ⇔ German Polish ⇔ German For feature requests and bug reports please contact me at bucjac@gmail.com. ** NOTICE ** For existing users the shortcut changed from Alt+Q to Alt+W. I am sorry if this caused you any inconvenience, however it was necessary as the old shortcut caused a lot of trouble for some users. ** NEW IN VERSION 2.0.2 ** - Now also works with Facebook and GMail ** NEW IN VERSION 2.0.4 ** - Apple Mac users can now use the command key as a part of their shortcut ** NEW IN VERSION 2.1 ** - Open the dictionary by selecting a word and right click. ** NEW IN VERSION 2.3 ** - Bug fixes

So frustrating! The dictionary opens in a pop up window that is too small to read the definitions, the window is not resizable, and it constantly asks to accept cookies. This makes it unusable. It's a pity...this would be so useful!

I really liked the extension, but recently the cookies acceptance dialog box is covering the dictionary windows that open up, and I have to manually close the cookies information window first before I can look up the meaning. It is really irritating doing it over and over again. Earlier I just had to press the shortcut key and get the meaning of the highlighted word on the side window that would pop out.
