Simpler Dictionary well within the desktop...
The other day, before coming across the Quick Look Dictionary WebService, I was trying to use Dictionary.com and the website was experiencing some technical issues reaching the same. Desparate to get some quick help in having a document to be drafted, I was researching on other web-based and offline dictionary tools. When I approached Redhy, he used a different trick to find the meaning of the word.
Just launch Microsoft Word. Type the word you want and when you right click the word you would be getting 'Synonyms'. A couple of times you use the word, the synonym that you get would be a familiar word. This way, you can effectively make use of a dictionary that is already built into the system.
