    Google Dictionary vs GoldenDict opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Google Dictionary is still a legitimate alternative to GoldenDict, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Google Dictionary is a Chrome extension, whereas GoldenDict is a standalone program. You can't use the former without Chrome.

    Not an application, but a browser extension. GoldenDict can be used from anywhere on the system and is stand-alone. Google Dictionary requires installation of Chrom(e/ium) browser and can be used only within it.
