What is Vocabulary in Context?

'Vocabulary in Context' is a Chrome extension that facilitates language learning by allowing users to save new vocabulary in its actual context while reading online articles or news. The saved vocabulary can then be reviewed later from any device. This approach mimics natural language acquisition and proves more effective as the words are encountered in contexts that interest the user. It acts as a useful toolkit for foreign language learners and includes special features like Mac OS X support, HTTPS page saving, conflict-free hotkeys, and optional automatic daily reminder to review saved vocabulary.
