13. Work lookup (and hearing) with WkiLook

Wikilook for Firefox was updated last week and is even better than before. It is similar to AnswerTips, but works with Wiktionary. All you need to do (once you has installed the add-on) is to hold down the Shift key and right click. It gives you the definition and (usually but not always) the pronunciation of the word. (Also if you hold down the Ctrl key instead of Shift, you can access Wikipedia.) It also allows you to change the look-up place, making it usable in many different languages. (For example, for the Spanish look-up, you could use http://es.wiktionary.org)
