I use this heavily. I started out with Rikaikun but eventually
switched from Firefox to Chrome when it got good enough and Rikaikun

So what's up with that? I've been considering moving to Firefox
(mainly to get more of my data off of Google and get better
backups/access to my bookmarks, passwords, etc.[1]), but lack of
Rikaichan would be pretty near a dealbreaker for me.

[1]: The issue here is that it's all encrypted with a local key, so
while any machine running Chrome where I've configured it to use that
key has access to the data, the website tools Google offers, such as
their password manager, can't read it at all.
