Chrome/Firefox extension that scans kanji

Rikaichan is the name of the extension for Chrome while rikaikun is the name for the firefox extension, click on the blue icon once installed to activate it, it has a slight delay time but eventually it'll become fully active and give you info on any kanji or kanji combinations you hover your mouse over.

I think you have the names switches around? The firefox extension I have installed is called 'Rikaichan': https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/rikaichan/


Also, Rikaigu is an enhanced version of the Chrome extension.


There's also an alternative called Yomichan which I personally find better than raikaichan/kun
