I know about this but unless you have multimonitor setup browser window is opened and this breaks reading experience.

I was thinking about something simpler - popup so I could quickly look at word and get back to reading. Chrome plugin is goog example (check screenshot)

Not worth the effort to me -- I dont find looking up words in a new window to be particularly disruptive, after all the very fact that I need to lookup a word means my reading flow has already been disrupted -- but patches are welcome.
