    "This extension is really helpful! It helps me to save time from searching the correct meaning of a word. I just have to select the word that I find very confusing and then a prompt will automatically show the meaning of that world. Google did a wonderful job creating this extension. Much thanks! "

    "I use this extension to my 8-year-old kid since he's so into games and youtube kids nowadays that he tends to neglect his studies and surprisingly, it worked. It really helped to focus on his studies and set limited time to watch and play. I am now at ease whenever my son uses the computer for long hours because of this. I know that he's studying instead of playing/ Mommies should really get this for their child! It will really help them to be disciplined. "
