I'm using Chrome (or software that is based on Chrome) and it has translation/search/copy toolbar that pops up when texts are selected. I would like to use that.

This new feature allows to select only ONE word only after long-pressing (very long pressing)

I have no idea what I can do about that, I dont knwo of any JS API to
get it to appear, probably it does not appear by itself as the book
content is inside an iframe.
