- Rated 2 out of 5by Firefox user 14380695, 2 years agoThe app is great, but looking more carefully at the permissions, I'm only using it very selectively, ie, only activating it when needed. The kind of access signed away lets it vacuum up far too much data. It's free, and this defrays the cost, but the type of data is so totally unrelated to it's task.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoHi! Thank you for your review. Which permissions are unnecessary?
Unfortunately, in order for Rikaichamp to be able to present pop-ups on the page it requires access to that page's contents. Web extensions do not provide any more fine-grained permissions that that. As far as I can tell, it's impossible to create a pop-up dictionary with fewer permissions.
The source code is available for audit and/or forking if you are concerned about misuse of those permissions.

edit: ok you're technically right so I'll change my rating
Developer responseposted 5 years agoI think that's clear from the add-on description (there is no hovering on touchscreens) so I don't think a 1/5 rating is fair.
That said, I'd like to make this support Android some day so perhaps we can address touchscreens at the same time.
Update: It now has first class support for touchscreens.
