I have been trying to make a similar extension for 2-3 days. You have done it, you have done it much better, I wish I had seen it before, I would not have tried so hard. + I wish there was a pop up option. For example, when I search for words in Cambridge, 820 x 1180 popup would open on the right side of the screen without adress bar and I would never have to change tabs. Please add that.

The best of its kind. I’ve been awaiting such extension for years. I used to use something similar in firefox 2, ages ago. Broken by upgrades.
