Lookup Word in Dictionary - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Looks up the selected text on a world famous online dictionary.

Just right-click on the selected text and choose * Lookup 'text' on the world famous, blue and red colored online dictionary context menu item and there you go! It was easy, huh? Or alternatively you can hit "Alt + W" shortcut to get the selected text looked up or if there is nothing selected, then the online dictionary is started up on a new tab. (Since version 1.2) HINT: Just be careful not hitting "Ctrl (Cmd on Mac) + W" instead, because it will close your active tab. But in case if you did so, don't panic, you can recover that tab by pressing "Ctrl (Cmd on Mac) + Shift + T". Buy me a coffee :) https://www.buymeacoffee.com/baspeti

Everything is great with the dictionary but using the extension and looking up words open a new tab instead of a pop up bubble right there on that page, it shouldn't be like that. One star less for that caveat.

I actually would want it to show me results without leaving the page I'm in. Maybe I can just double click or just right click and select Lookup, but the result shouldn't take me off my page.
