More about this extension

A simple extension that makes reading Wikipedia articles more convenient.
When reading how often do you have to open an additional cross-article just to glimpse quickly at the meaning of a term you do not know?
Now with Wikipedia Quick Hints getting definitions of unknown terms has become as simple as just hovering the cursor over a respective link. The definition pops up automatically.
See screenshots for example.

To get a pop up definition hover the cursor over the link holding the control key (Shift, Ctrl or Alt).

Important: be sure to hold your control key down before you scroll over the word/phrase you want to know more about.

Change Log:

- restructuring and code improvements;
- icons change;
- some bugs with the hint position.
