Do you want to find more information about something? Check Answers.com. The service pulls information from several different reference sites to provide answers to your questions. You get full encyclopedia entries from services such as Wikipedia and Britannica, as well as spelling, usage information, and translations into different languages.
Since these other services are updated frequently, entries on Answers.com tend to stay fairly current. Users are also able to register, and answer questions that have been asked by other users. The service has also partnered with sites such as nytimes.com to bring the service to any word used in articles on the site; readers simply hold down the Alt key while clicking their mouse.
In addition to its Web site, Answers.com offers a software program users can install to look up any word they come across on their computer, be it in other Web sites, e-mails, or applications. There's also a Facebook daily trivia application and a plug-in for blog owners that will highlight keywords with small pop-up links to content on Answers.com pages.
Answers.com is the place where reference information and Q&A content come together to deliver the best answers on the Internet. It's built upon a combination of two answering styles: ReferenceAnswers is a one-stop shop that aggregates dictionaries, encyclopedias, atlases and more, offering millions of topics available for fast-fact lookup as well as deep research; WikiAnswers is an advanced Q&A platform powered by the collaborative efforts of a global knowledge community...with a wiki-twist.
