The internet is a melting pot of languages, which makes a Dictionary (+ thesarus) a handy tool for netizens. The browser extension resulting from this supports:

  • Showing the varying definitions of the given word in different contexts.
  • Pronounciation guide in audio format.
  • Real-world usages of the word in sentences.
  • Complex words used in the definition are hyperlinked.
  • Support for all the major languages of the world from Arabic to German.
  • A thesarus of synonyms and antonyms.

Under the hood, the extension is using Google’s dictionary API, which in turn integrates with major dictionary providers around the world like Oxford. I estimate that there are over a 100 dictionary extensions on the Chrome Webstore, and I hope this is the alternative you’re looking for.
