A port of rikaichan for chrome. Translate Japanese by hovering over words.
*Version History Below*
This is a port of rikaichan to chrome. For arbitrary reasons, I've called it rikaikun.
Activate the extension by clicking on the 理 in the top right. Some people have reported that loading might take up to 10 seconds on OSX. When the introductory pop up appears, rikaikun is ready for action.
When it's activated, when you hover over Japanese words they'll be translated in a pop up. If you hit shift/enter, you'll see some information about the first Kanji.
It's not as done as I wanted, but please file issues at the link provided if you have any problems or feature requests. If you click on the "Details" tab you can find a link to the support page where you can file bugs and feature requests.
