This is such a great extension! Snappy fast and I love that I can enable Zhuyin-only and a Taiwanese voice. My only feature request: I would love if it had a monolingual Chinese-Chinese dictionary option as well, for those of us masochistic enough to want to try target-language-ONLY lookups. ;) The Moedict extension has this and that's the only thing missing here.
