Nazeka is a rikai replacement (japanese mouseover dictionary) with very fast text scrubbing and a built-in clipboard grabber. Has support for "mining", automated flashcard creation.

Nazeka is almost ready for general use. I just need to finish polishing off some of its core features. Any day now...

Full tutorial here:

To open the clipboard grabber (a text grabbing page), right click on the browser action icon and select Open Reader. Not supported on Android.

The mining storage review page is opened in the same way.

The mining UI is opened by pressing "m" while the dictionary popup is open. All hotkeys are configurable. If live mining is enabled and configured, and Anki is open, it will also mine to Ankiconnect, not just storage.

"b" toggles sticky mode. Because Nazeka is so fast, sticky mode is only useful in very rare circumstances.

"n" will close the dictionary popup.
