Firefox 3 Mouseover Dictionary Plugin

Posted by trevelyan June 22, 2008 in the Group General Discussion .

Hi guys,

Joannah posted earlier about difficulties installing her perakun plugin under Firefox 3. I haven't been able to dredge up that thread, but wanted to post a link to a more updated version we've released:


This version is similar to perakun in the sense that it also uses the Adso dictionary and provides translations/pinyin for Chinese text on mouseover. The interface is standardized Adso-style and the backend code is designed for Chinese rather than Japanese texts. We've automated the process of producing the database and will be releasing regular dictionary updates as well, which should benefit the perakun community too.

The code itself is "hot off the press", and hasn't been tested in anything but Windows and Linux. Please report any issues you run into and they will be fixed promptly.

Cheers from Beijing,
