Question Problems with dictionary and search

There is currently only one dictionary and only one search (google) options. But what if i need, let's say:
Search images by word
Search for etymology
Search for synonyms
Search for definition
Search for context translation

Right now there is only 2 options: search through dictionary and search directly (google). But thats only 2 of 5. Without all of those there is just too much clicks to be made.

Is there any solution? Plugins maybe?

You can add arbitrary URLs to lookup in the viewer preferences, but only one URL per language.

p.s. I just realized that you are the creator of the program so thank you for your work anyway

Well once calibre 4 is released (which has a completely re-written viewer) feel free to request an enhancement for it to add more lookup methods.
