Love the simplicity, @kahtaf :) Are you planning on a way to get information from multiple sources? Like it'd be cool if it searched technical terms from Wolfram Alpha and if I highlight a name of a song, it'd fetch me the lyrics from Genius etc. I can see that being a tool many would want to use!

@amrith Thank you! That's a great idea! I will certainly look into that for a future version :)
I enjoy the extension so far. Would you consider adding an option that removes the automatic pop-up in replace of a right-click action?

This feature is in the Kindle for ipad and I find it extremely useful when reading history books, so having this on a web page is one better

Could maybe do with a hotkey option, to avoid the accidental triggering.

Pros:

Nice design and functions well.

Cons:

Sometimes pops up when you don't want it to (usually due to accidentally highlighting something)

Appreciate the feedback! I'll be adding a right-click option to avoid those accidental triggers soon.
