Editors' Review

+

WordWeb enables you to check spelling, look up definitions, get synonyms from a thesaurus, and more. If you're a writer, a student, or someone just learning English, you could find this software absolutely invaluable.

Pros

Offline mode: WordWeb doesn't require an Internet connection in order to provide valuable data.

Audio pronunciations: The free version comes with audio pronunciations for thousands of words. An even broader selection of audio pronunciations is available in the paid upgrade.

Tabbed dictionaries: If you have preferred sources, you can add them into the tabbed browser within WordWeb. This is handy for doing quick lookups from multiple sources with just a few clicks.

Cons

Dated appearance: The only real downside is that WordWeb's interface looks fairly dated.

Bottom Line

If you find yourself looking up definitions regularly, this could be a very useful desktop tool for you. It is customizable, powerful, and flexible, and can offer you even further functionality if you're willing to upgrade from the free to the paid version.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of WordWeb 7.1.

"Used it for years"

November 30, 2014  |  By Jeysun

 |  Version: WordWeb 7.1

Pros

Quick and concise. Very quick at spell checking and basic definitions.

Cons

It could stand to have more detailed definitions.

Summary

It's kind of one of those can't live without pieces of software.

"Epic & I love it!"

September 27, 2014  |  By BallsMcGee7777

 |  Version: WordWeb 7.1

Pros

-Light in both size & use of resources
-Great software license, albeit a bit strange (the thing about how often you fly)
-Quick
-Extremely helpful
-SO easy to use
-Extensions for browsers
-Highlight a word anywhere & just select tray icon to get definitions, antonyms & synonyms, as well as wiki info on said word.

Cons

-Needs to list more definitions, as well as maybe two sentences instead of just one, but then again, the fact you have access to wikis & other stuff directly in program, it makes up for this
-Nothing else I can really think of at the moment

Summary

I wasn't even looking for something like this & I don't even remember how or why I even came across it, but I did & I installed it at some point & well, I gotta say, I pretty much love it. I wouldn't run it if it wasted much resources either, because my CPU & RAM are priceless to me & I need them for MANY other things all the time, luckily WordWeb is awesomely light. I don't even notice it until I need it & when I do, it's quick & helpful. They did a really great job with this software & didn't add any useless or stupid features that ruin it or hinder the software, and most importantly, it has the type of interface I like, one which plays well with my Windows 7 and the custom themes I use and to top it off, I get to choose the fonts for the software, so that gives them 100 points more in my book. Love this!
