Just stumbled across the Scaife Viewer at Perseus. Check it out. Massive improvement over old Perseus.

You bet. I should have announced this here, James Tauber did this.

Wow, that certainly is a vast improvement.

Congrats to James Tauber on making something great, even greater!

Excellent. Playing a bit with it, but I don't see how to check morphology (parsing).

First, set the text mode to highlight:

Then click on a word to highlight it:

Information about that word appears in the right-hand pane:

Ah, very good. It remains to see how accurate it is, but the layout and readability is much, much better.

It works well in Firefox, so far, but not in Safari yet. (For Mac, at least.) Nice to see that they finally made it possible to enter Greek in Greek, and not have to use that ugly, clunky Betacode. Looking forward to exploring it more.

The highlight feature to check morphology is welcome, too.

It worked for me in Safari.

Interesting, because I just had upgraded from OS X 10.11 to 10.12 before trying it in Safari (about 2 days earlier). Are you both using Safari for Mac, or for Windows? Anyway, in Safari I get an error message that it can't load the viewer.
