Quickly Lookup Words From Dictionaries When Using Firefox

Normally, when coming across a new word while surfing the internet using Firefox, we highlight that specific word and search for it using any of the search engines to find it’s meaning.

There is a useful Firefox add-on that offers multiple dictionaries as reference for finding the meaning of any word so that any word or term can be looked up instantaneously. This is the Multi Dictionary Lookup add-on.

Download it from here.
