Quickly search information as you browse.  Just select the text you want to look up, bring up the right-click context menu, and select the configured lookup option that you want.

Need to quickly check the definition of "bi-weekly" when someone emails you about a meeting?  Curious about the literal meaning of "je ne sais quoi" when it comes up in an article?  Want to know who exactly "Robert Walpole" is when someone mentions them in a comment?

Context Lookups has you covered!  Get up to speed or satisfy your curiosity in no time at all, then be on your merry way.  You can set the results to appear as regular webpages, or make things extra convenient with simplified popup windows.

This much can already be done with just the default lookups, but the possibilities go far beyond that.  Copy the search query URL base of whatever website you want to use, and create a context menu item for it in the extension popup, it's that simple.  Just remember to save your changes!

Here are a couple more to try:

- Use "" as the URL base.

Risk impact

Context Lookups is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Context Lookups has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Love being able to configure this to search various different types of sites like Amazon, Youtube, or even my email.
