This good, maybe the best in market, very tailor for everyone need. Still have space for improve: 1. Should have a simpler version meet basic need: copy, translate, google search. This will be easier for someone who have not time to discover many option in current version. 2. Translate should popup directly on using tab, instead of be opened in new tab, I need the pronounce function of google translation, but don't want to wait for new tab, and waste more time to close that tab

I dig it... I really really do. Not sure if its updated regularly but it functions just fine in Edge as if it is a native part of the operating system. I also like dig just how much can be controlled in settings.

I installed this extension for a tiny little pop-up to define words. It only searches Wikipedia for definitions. Very disappointing that I almost uninstalled. What kept me from uninstalling are the copy and search buttons which are very useful. I was pleasantly surprised by the Highlight feature, then disappointed at how buggy it was that I disabled it. Shouldn't even be an option. 4/5 stars unless "define" button is improved. Then I'll change to 5/5. Reply to dev: I see how it works now. So... Show more

"Define" button uses free Wikipedia API dedicated to providing small excerpts on different terms and words. I haven't found any other free public service with no limits per day, which provides vocabulary definitions on all supported languages (English, Spanish, Russian etc). If you know such service, please feel free to suggest adding it to the extension.
