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 🙂
