Review:
Highlights, annotates, translates, full or quick references (eg: wordreference.com, wikipedia), speech, and more. It was designed to help language learning, but it can do so much more. Right click on a page or on a selection to see the menu of options. Some surprises include a text to speech capability (the voice isn't great) and a webpage simplifier to reduce clutter. It was given 3 out of four stars because it is a little complex. It can almost do too much, and the icons are small. It works great but you will save yourself frustration by reading how to use the tool. One tip, you have to select the text on the page before you can do anything. After selecting the text, right click or control click to activate the highlighter.
