It could be better!

I really like being able to read kanji now! But I wish I didn’t have to click the button everytime, I wish I could just leave it on for as long as I need it.

Not Perfect

This might be good for beginners but if your Japanese is fairly advanced and you just need the occasional assist, it can be kind of annoying.

- I have found quite a few mistakes.
- Does not continue working as you browse, so you have to hit the button every time you go to another page.

I gave it a three because I would like to see where it goes from here, so I am not deleting it, but it is no replacement for Safarikai which also had a dictionary and only showed the reading if you hovered over a word, so no clutter. Would have given it a 4 if I had not found mistakes.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. In principle, nothing has changed with regards to installing Furiganify! in version 1.0.1. Clicking the 'Install' button in the App should open the Extensions tab in Safari Preferences. You should be able to install Furiganify! from there manually as well. If Furiganify! does not show up as an available extension, please try restarting Safari. In case the issue persists, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
