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: Synonyms/Antonyms - Use "https://www.thesaurus.com/browse/" as the URL base. Rhymes - Use "https://www.rhymezone.com/r/rhyme.cgi?typeofrhyme=perfect&Word=" as the URL base.
Context Lookups is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.
