With 斯his add-on you can 平ven 孟tart reading Japanese without having studied any Japanese before, since it includes meanings for particles and will show you the 緊ense/form of a word when you hover over it! You get used to it very fast too, although some katakana 字ords it doesn't recognize (you can probably guess at those yourself though). I only wish it had options for changing the font size for the popup menus since it can be a 小ittle too small for me.It also sometimes works in conjunction with other add-ons, ex. if you use "Characterizer", which replaces words or parts of words with other words (in this case, replacing English words with kanji), then you can hover over the inserted kanji with Rikaichan and see their meanings.

Extremely useful tool for Japanese studying people Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a truly excellent add-on: easy to use and unobtrusive, it lets you go through pages and pages of Japanese text without having to pause mid-sentence to search a term on the dictionary. This improves reading speed, reading comprehension and enjoyment of the experience of learning Japanese. The Japanese-English dictionary sometimes gets meanings that my paid for electronic dictionary can't. The names dictionary is also very useful, even if it could use more entries. Of particular interest is the feature that displays next to the translation the inflection of a word (past, polite, potential, passive etc.). That's useful not only for reading but also for checking your own emails and other writings and make sure you got a form right. If I have to find something to nitpick, a more compact and stylish design wouldn't hurt.

Rikaichan is my best and favourite add-on. I've been working in a Japanese company, its difficult read mails and related sites. This is very useful for read each and every Kanji English meaning. This could be a study experience. So its very great for me as a foreigner.

If anyone want to learn Japanese, can use Rikaichan...Its my recommendation.

My favourite Firefox add-on is Rikaichan. As a student learning Japanese at a university level, I spend a lot of time reading Japanese texts online. I used to copy the kanji and words I didn't know, open a new tab, look up the Jim Breen online dictionary, paste the text, search... now, with the Rikaichan add-on, you can simply hover over the text, and BAM, there's the translation!!

Of course, this is brilliant for when you see a kanji that you don't know how to pronounce, plus it tells you right away if the word you've looked up is a name; in Jim Breen, you have to activate a separate dictionary. Furthermore, when looking up verbs that are in any form other than the dictionary form, it tells you explicitly what form of the verb it is. For example, if you look up 食べさせる, it will come up with the dictionary form 食べる(causative), which is actually more powerful than the Jim Breen website, which just directs you to the dictionary form without telling you the original verb form.

For anyone wishing to experience to Japanese online, nothing beats the simplicity of using the Rikaichan Firefox add-on.

This is one of the two best add-ons I ever acquired. I use it very often and it is SUPER useful. It has a vast dictionary, and the feature that lets me hover over kanji to see the pronunciation and reading has been ever so valuable to me. Thanks so much, Rikaichan! I give your add-on a 10 of 10 rating!

This is an extremely useful add on. I've been using it for years now and was never disappointed once. Cant wait for a working version for FF 4, I'm seriously considering downgrading my FF so I can use this add on again.

will be very useful include a romaji pronunciation next to hiragana text (it's the same, i know, but i don't remember all hiragana alphabet, will be more faster reading with the western alphabet)... but still is a very good tool.

Rikaichan is up there with Firebug as my absolute favorite, indispensable addons. I never thought I'd need this as much as I do but to a non-native Japanese speaker with no Japanese acquaintences (or tv for that matter), it is truly essential. Just like user scantly I, too, type a word in a text field for a quick lookup. I now don't need google language tools to fill in forms in Japanese and it takes me much less time to get an overview on what is what on any Japanese page.

Life saver extension. I really like that it tells you how the word is conjugated. I often write in words I hear people saying in a text field to get a quick translation of the word I want to know.
