    "Easy! Time Saver! An Awesome Resource for Writing"

    February 7, 2010  |   By elliehowe


    It's always there. I can highlight a word, get definitions, synonyms, specialized dictionaries (medical, for example). Any word that's on my screen -- whether I'm reading it or writing it -- is a cinch to "look up." I've been a big fan for years!


    There's nothing to dislike. It's awesome!


    After using Word Web for awhile, I dumped the dictionary/thesaurus software on my PC. Word Web is faster, easier, less cumbersome than trying to use those programs, and it opens many more resources (20 or more dictionaries!) so I can check and compare definitions, correct usage, subtle nuances in meanings, as well as idioms, slang terms, and foreign expressions. It also opens a translator to translate a word from English to Japanese, for example. It just keeps getting better and better with every version...and it's still free! Thank you, Word Web!
