    The terrific free WordWeb dictionary/thesaurus is always one of the very first apps I install on any new system. WordWeb may not be quite as comprehensive as some of the alternative online services but it will generally provide better than sufficient information and more than compensates with its versatility and almost immediate responses.

    WordWeb provides users with word and common phrase definitions plus a pretty useful list of synonyms and antonyms. The latest versions also incorporate 5000 audio pronunciations. It integrates with literally anything which contains text, both offline and online: Simply press the ?Ctrl? key and then right click on the word (or phrase).

    Here is a typical result from a Word document:

    And from a web page:

    So useful to check meanings and correct word usage; especially useful for writers to quickly look up synonyms so they are not repeating the same word over and over. Highly recommended!!

    *Definitions and synonyms
    *Proper nouns
    *Related words
    *5000 audio pronunciations
    *150 000 root words
    *220 000 word senses
    *Fixed web reference tabs
