Awesome Chrome Plug-In

I've been using Google's Chrome browser for the past four months or so. It's a great improvement over Internet Explorer, and it seems better than Firefox as well (I haven't used Firefox as much so it's harder to judge). Today I was looking at the plug-ins/extensions offered for Chrome and saw this:
See instant definitions

This extension lets you double-click a word on a page to view its definition in a small pop-up bubble. The extension also adds a small icon to the address bar that you can click to search for a definition. You can set the dictionary language via the options menu for the extension.
As someone who is concerned about the exact meanings of words, I often look up words even when I think I already know them. This extension is going to save me a lot of time. I don't know if other browsers offer anything similar.
