This program is very helpful when you just can't remember that word, because it is quick and easy. However, if you are planning any type of composition or serious use of the language you'd better have a paper dictionary on hand. This program has limited, one-word definitions that may or may not be quite accurate, and it doesn't give you gender at all. I noticed a few minor imperfections in accents and spelling--not a big deal, but enough to make me wonder how much I can trust this dictionary. I always begin writing using this dictionary as a reference, but I inevitably dig out my paper dictionary for a comprehensive and exact definition of what I'm looking for. I use it mostly for when I should know the word but just need a hint. So, if you're just looking for quick definitions, this is a great tool, but don't rely heavily on it for serious stuff.
What a piece of work for a Free program. I've been using different online dictionaries, but they all were confused and never satisfice me. This one it is not only good, but complete with differents meanings. Use it!!!
This dictionary works much better than the ones I payed for. Searching for words is so easy, there are links to synonyms. Also word functions and contexts are defined with different colors, which makes perception so easy at first sight. I don't use the browser function, and I think it is not necessary. Also, you can use it as a side bar, which makes its use very convenient. The only thing I would like to have is that the program window might have been transparent. I leave it on the side all the time, so it blocks a part of my desktop.
