How many find wordweb indispensable ?

Thought of sharing info on one of the most indispensable utility to JOS readers. The ui is so simple and userfriendly and you don't need to have to open up a browser to check the spelling or meaning, just select the word and ctrl-alt-W. One of the best tray apps I have ever used. haven't yet checked the new version, but the old ones were pretty good.

Whenever I feel bad about the quality of my side projects, there's WordWeb to make me feel better.

Thanks, WordWeb!

Hey there Anthony Lewis. Thanks for pimping your product here. Hopefully it will get the bold "mark of distinction"!

What I want is a spell check for web forum dialog boxes. Word web doesn't appear to do that.

And why should I use word web when I have a free copy of the Shorter Oxford Dictionary?

I was talking about the free version of wordweb. To be honest I didn't even know who the hell was Anthony. A dictionary not necessarily gives similar words, it  just gives meanings. This is a thesaurus and whatever you can think of about words, but it doesn't give usage.  Its also available within any program by pressing ctrl-alt-w, it can act as a spell checker because if the word is not found its lists words closer to that spelling. I have not tried thr pro version to tell what's the additional benefit.

Hey, Anonymizer, just chill and stop hatin' on Sunish. Dude's just trying to be helpful, know what I mean?

(And no, I'm not Anthony or even a reasonable facsimile)

Sunish - do yo' thing, dog.

Peace!
