This is about another addon that is of immense help to those that work with words. I came across this addon a few years ago. But somehow during the ensuring browser crashes and OS hopping and upgrades and updates I missed it. Today I found it again and to my surprise I learned, Hyperwords has a version even for Chrome. Once you install it and restart your Firefox / Chrome you are all ready and set to go.
Hyperwords - an extension for Firefox and Chrome browser
When you are on the net, select any text that you need to learn more about. You will notice a small icon next to the text. Hover your cursor on the Hyperword icon and you are shown a few options. Choose the one that suits you and you are done. You can do a whole lot of things with Hyperwords addon and the text on the web. You can translate, email, share, find meanings and synonyms. It interacts with Facebook and Twitter too.

No wonder there were one million, eleven thousand, four hundred and twenty one downloads when I checked the last time. 🙂
Give it a shot. I am sure you would love it.

Luca Grementieri, of Javafactory came out with an extension for Chrome. Once you install the extension Incognito Switcher, a single click on the extension icon opens your Chrome browser into a new ‘incognito’ window. You can try that too.
Good luck with your private browsing. Be good, don’t be naughty. 🙂
