I am one of the huge fans of Chrome browser. I have reasons why I opt for this browser and not for others particularly Firefox or Opera. I have both used them before but never was satisfied with their performance. I have already written a a post about The Reasons Why I Use Chrome but still truth to be told, Chrome gets on my nerve because it sometimes would crush on me I know I overload it with too many tabs opened in one session but hopefully it is not the case with you.
I would still recommend it for teachers and educators.Anyway if you already use it or are going to then here are some great dictionary extensions you can install in it. These add-ons are supposed to help you instantly define words you come across while reading online. Some of them lets you just highlight the word and click on it to get a pop-up window with the definition of the word. Just be careful once you get used to them, you will be dependant on them so much to the point that when you are browsing the net from another computer you would feel like something is missing. That's what happens to me every time I am working on the school's computers.
