This site is incredibly useful – just paste a URL or selected Japanese text, hit Go and you will see your page or text reproduced but with a twist – when you mouse over a word you will see a definition and readings for that word.

Note: POPjisyo.com offers more or less the same thing and is, apparently, an imitator of this site. You can’t go wrong with either site, but I actually prefer POPjisyo a bit because it seems to include some non-Kanji words (not always accurate though). It also uses a different dictionary at its foundation which is sometimes better.
