User reviews
It is a MUST have extension. It has saved me time and has built my vocabulary. I would usually just ignore a word I do not know but this browser extension allows me to understand texts better! I highly recommend to everyone and it is actually for everyone not just a specific group. Kids, adults, and students especially should all be using it.

Hello my name is John Sati I believe highlighting vocabulary to understand it more is very important. I believe this extension will not only help me but help everyone else for everyone that uses this. This has helped me understand words I don't know and expanding my vocabulary. Most of the time I read anything there are always words that I never understand but with this extension I will never have that problem again. I would recommend this to many college kids, and people of all ages as it is always good to learn new things in life.

This is the chrome extension everyone needs! It saves you a lot of time, and is very useful to help enhance ones vocabulary skills. Often times when people are reading and do not understand a word they don’t take the time to go and look up the definition. This extension does that for you! I would highly recommend this extension to any high school/college student, or just anyone who wants to improve their vocabulary.
