This is great - just installed it. It works perfectly on my WIN XP, Firefox. Thanks a lot!
Amazing add-on, you wont regret installing this one.
I love this addon! Thanks a lot! : )
The only thing i am missing is not being able to use nihilistorguk's kanji stroke order font.
I love this add-on. It's changed the way I learn Japanese! (although it took me WAY too long to realize you have to hit "shift" twice to switch to the names dictionary) @nvermore82 - about the symbols you mention in the names dictionary: I think you're right (m) = "male name", (f) = "female". I think (s) = "surname" and (p) = "place name". Still don't know what (u) stands for. Perhaps "uncommon"? I never see it on names I recognize.
Simply perfect and the integration and easy-to-use is fantastic, a must have addon and for the complete learning for japanese I also recomend XHTML ruby support, to have furigana upper the kanji.
I was getting error:
Exception: TypeError: document.getElementByID("rikaichan-toggle-" + c) is null
I disable Microsoft .Net Framework Assistant 1.0
I love rikaichan to pieces but would LOVE to see a pop-up Ijisho!! Any word on development? I would so totally pay cash for that. I realize the with there being no mouse, one would have to finger highlight or something... anyone have any ideas?
I love this! It is very useful. The only thing I miss is some indicator to show whether Rikaichan is active or not. Maybe an icon in the status bar or similar. And of course, if toggled, then there should be a check mark in the tools menu to indicate that the toggle is already active.
Amazing program. I wish there was a Japanese-Japanese dictionary. When you reach higher levels in Japanese, JP-JP is far more useful and a lot more detailed
This is useful! just wish the pronunciation (in English alphabet) is provided, because I still can't read hiragana & katakana all that well.. :(
Top add-on, would recommend this to anybody learning Japanese (or German/French/Russian too apparently). Great stuff.
Very nice. Can you tell me if it's possible to make it so that you need to press and hold a key like CTRL to make the popup show up? I think its a little annoying to have it popup just by hovering over the text. thank you!
Rikaichan 1.04 doesn't work with Firefox 3.0.6. Comes up with an error at startup "Exception: TypeError: document.getElementByID("rikaichan-toggle-" + c) is null". please help!

This is one of the most useful pieces of software I have on my PC; I would be lost without it.
In future versions, I hope the names dictionary will be usable with hiragana & katakana again (it's more useful than it sounds!) rather than kanji-only. More slang/colloquialisms, expressions & interjections and idioms would be welcome too.
These are minor things, however, and I recommend giving rikaichan at least a try-out whatever your level of fluency.
Great for using Japanese websites without understanding a word :)
what about adding english to japanese direction?
Perfect :D I think it should only have more customizable balloon colors and transparency on those, like FetchImi does. No additional issues :D rly r0x.
I love this add-on. I use it all the time- it makes quick translations so much easier.
Great app. Invaluable, really.
Just wondering if anyone knows what the abbreviations in the names dictionary stand for?
After a name there’s (f), (m), (p), (s), or (u) listed. I’m guessing f = female name. M = male name. But I’m not sure and I’d like to find out what the others mean.
It works great in Thunderbird and Firefox. Now I'm able to read the mails from my Japanese penpals within minutes and not in hours as before.
It ends up rather useless since you have to turn it on manually every time you want to use it. For the life of me I can't understand their logic.
It's a very useful and handy extension. I love it.
Awesome addon, I couldn't live without it. Although, would it be possible to add a J-J dictionary?
