Review: Tech Terms Computer Dictionary offers easy access to the TechTerms site

Delve into the very informative TechTerms Computer Dictionary for Mac site with this basic dashboard widget.

Tech Terms Computer Dictionary for Mac may be a bit of a misnomer as this widget doesn't really provide dashboard access to the definitions of Tech Terms, but it does open a browser window to the appropriate page available on the Tech Terms Web site.

Installation was quite a breeze and the application installed as a widget directly into our Dashboard. The widget, itself, is quite basic and includes a search box. When the user types in a specific term, the widget takes the user to the appropriate page on the Tech Terms Computer Dictionary Web site. During testing there were no significant problems with the widget. We tried inputting multiple terms and the widget connected us to the appropriate pages quickly. Even though it is one-dimensional as an app, Tech Terms Computer Dictionary for Mac performs exactly as it should. We would have liked to see the definitions appear on the widget, itself, though; but nevertheless, the app is fully operational and useful as it is.

An easy-to-use yet one-dimensional product, Tech Terms Computer Dictionary for Mac could perhaps be useful for someone who needs instant access to technical terminology. A tech writer or blogger, for example, could find this tool very handy.
