Rikaichan - My Japanese reading skills will soon increase. This is not a tool for someone just starting to learn the language, but it is EXACTLY what I need to get past the block that I am currently facing. Don't know a kanji? Don't understand a loanword? Mouse over any Japanese text on any page, and this Firefox extension will provide you with a pronounciation (in kana; great practice) and all possible meanings. Japanese forums and newspapers, here I come!

And just to make this post even more scattered, and because I am too lazy to create anything of my own at the moment, here is a link to XKCD. The comics are nice, but I personally go for the logic puzzles and language practice in the forums. While I'm at it, why not some bears?
