I've been using Rikaichan for quite some time now, but I wasn't aware of Moji.

Some of the letters on the Yomiyuri site remind me of mainichi's WaiWai, but they lean more towards a "Dear Abby" than a "Hey, look at this strange, obscure, possibly embarassing or disturbing thing we've found in Japan" style of content.

rikaichan and Moji make a great team - when you are skimming and just want to get the reading for a kanji quicksmart rikaichan is your baby. Moji is there to help you compile a list for later study. BTW I have noticed problems toggling between rikaichan and Moji in Firefox 2. It used to be that both rikaichan and Moji were operational but that rikaichan's function made it difficult to highlight text for Moji, so toggling off rikaichan was the best bet for smooth Moji use. In Firefox 2 I have noticed that if I capture something using Moji, rikaichan automatically toggles off and then it takes THREE visits to the "Toggle rikaichan" command to get it functional again. A bit of a pain in the arse.

Yeah - Dear Abby is the best comparison. Wai Wai's constant focus on sexual licentiousness can get stale after a while. The realness of the Yomiuri letters is what makes them a good read.



I know this is an older post, but for anyone catching up on the comments, you might want to check out Rikaichan's new incarnation as PeraPera-Kun. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/3343/

For me, this makes moji obsolete.
