What is Dictionaries At Hand?
Dictionaries At Hand is a Firefox add-on that allows you to easily search for definitions in multiple dictionaries. With a wide range of available dictionaries, including Cambridge, Oxford, and The Free Dictionary, you can access definitions in various languages with just a few clicks.
This extension helps you keep all of your favorite dictionaries at hand and search definitions in a blink of an eye. This is not meant to be used to translate words but only to look definitions up in a specific language (e.g. english word, english definition).
How does it work?
This extension comes with default dictionaries, sorted by language (the dictionaries are added regularly by me thanks to your feedbacks) and you can see them listed down below. In the option page you can add the dictionaries you want to your personal list and, there, you can enable/disable the dictionaries from the contextual menu of the browser. If a dictionary has been added to the personal list and is enabled, when you select a word and right-click, you will see the dictionary in the browser's contextual menu and by clicking on it, a pop-up, if enabled in the options page, will appear with the page for that word in the dictionary you clicked. If the pop-up is disabled, the page will be opened in a new tab. If the dictionary you want is not among the available ones, you can temporarily add it manually and ask me to add it in the next update of the extension. You will find a tutorial on how to fully use the extension once you've installed it.
