Browser Search

This website provides OpenSearch plugins, so that you can search the Dieli dictionary from the search bar in Mozilla Firefox. This page shows how to install them on desktop and mobile devices.

Google Chrome does not have a search bar, so this page also explains how to add Dieli dictionary searches to Chrome's address bar.
