Previously I had been using Perapera with Chrome and loved it, but there weren’t any options for Safari (I’ve covered pop-up dictionary browser add-ons previously). Today, I’ve been able to release the first version after several weeks of sporadic development. Here’s a screenshot of what it currently looks like:
For those interested, a few features:
- It uses the CC-CEDICT dictionary, which has over 100,000 definitions.
- It supports both simplified and traditional characters.
- There’s a toolbar button to enable/disable it.
- It’s free!
- It’s open source, released under a CC-BY-SA license.
Please feel free to give any feedback, especially bug reports or feature requests. I’d love to hear from anyone using it!
(Note that this extension only works for Safari on OS X. Safari for iOS (iPhone/iPad) doesn’t support extensions.)
