  • New: Translate on right click (context menus)
  • Automatic copy of selected text fragments
  • Automatic detection of source text's language
  • Set and save preferred languages: you don't have to scroll dozen of languages to find your preferred ones

Note: Automatic selection of the text can not work in the extensions gallery (for example, this page), the extensions gallery cannot be scripted! -- Google said that :-(
