Firefox and Google Dictionary

There is an excellent extension by Google for Chrome browser, Google Dictionary.

The idea is that you selected a word and the extn will lookup meaning of it on Google Dictionary and provide a nice hover info containing meaning and other details.

I searched Firefox for such simple extension but couldn’t find one. So I created a very basic user script based on Google Dictionary.

The script will lookup the selected word meaning in Google Dictionary and uses javascript alert to show meaning. Its very basic and works for me 🙂

Here is a github gist url – Google Dictionary user script

What is Dojo?

Dojo is the Open Source JavaScript toolkit that helps you build
serious applications in less time. It fills in the gaps where
JavaScript and browsers don’t go quite far enough, and gives you
powerful, portable, lightweight, and tested tools for constructing
dynamic interfaces. Dojo lets you prototype interactive widgets
quickly, animate transitions, and build Ajax requests with the most
powerful and easiest to use abstractions available. These
capabilities are built on top of a lightweight packaging system, so
you never have to figure out which order to request script files in
again. Dojo’s package system and optional build tools help you
develop quickly and optimize transparently.

Dojo also packs an easy to use widget system. From prototype to
deployment, Dojo widgets are HTML and CSS all the way. Best of all,
since Dojo is portable JavaScript to the core, your widgets can be
portable between HTML, SVG, and whatever else comes down the pike.
The web is changing, and Dojo can help you stay ahead.

Dojo makes professional web development better, easier, and faster.
In that order.

Draggable Windows Using Javascript

This is a POC similar to the Google’s Personal Homepage.

Drag Me
The core JavaScript language has matured.
It has been standardized and is used in a wider variety of environments than it was previously.
The collapse of Netscape’s market share has allowed the universe of desktop web browsers to expand,
and JavaScript-enabled web browsers have also become available on non-desktop platforms.

Some problems for this on Firefox due to wordpress.
