Chinese handwriting recognition and quick translations from nciku.com
Quick access to the popular nciku.com Chinese handwriting recognition tool, plus quick translations from nciku when you select or hover your mouse over Chinese text in webpages.
Tooltip translations include pinyin, definitions and audio recordings. They also provide links to the full nciku.com entry which has even more content like examples and stroke order animations.
NOTE: The tooltips will only work on tabs which were loaded *after* the extension was installed. If you want to use it in tabs which you already have open, press F5 to re-load the page.
What's new in this version?
The extension now caches results, so subsequent lookups of the same word work instantly without having to connect to our server (this caching is per-page for now, so looking up the same word on a different page will still connect to nciku).
Also made some other minor changes, inluding adding transparency to the TTS icon and changing the link format so we can see which nciku.com searches came from this extension.
