User reviews
Consider changing the icon color, it blends with the skin when using dark themes. Having to set the separator to space every time is a bit annoying.

Works as advertised. I wish I knew to open a word card instead of full search as Anki is showing eveything on the search page.

It is good, and can be better. Very look forward to new feature of furigana and word meaning
