Dictionary of Numbers

Dictionary of Numbers is an award-winning Chrome plugin that attempts to make sense of the numbers you meet on the web by providing a human-friendly description of that number. In the same way that a dictionary discusses unknown words in familiar terms, the Dictionary of Numbers describes amounts unfamiliar to you in understandable terms.

While searching for numbers on the internet, the Dictionary of Numbers will read the websites you visit. When it comes across a number that it can comprehend, it describes what the number looks like in human words. For example, the phrase “8 million people” signifies nothing, yet the “population of New York City” means absolutely everything. You can hover your cursor over the current description to see them in a popup window if there are further descriptions.
