Developer's Description

Read abstracts from each article about different subjects.

Look no further - the world's biggest Encyclopedia. Features: over 1.5 million articles carefully checked for accuracy and completeness by a team of experts; 100 times as many articles as in Concise Encyclopedia Britannica; 15 times as many articles as in the 17 volume paper edition of Encyclopedia Britannica. The Encyclopedia is based on Wikipedia, the largest collection of reference work in the history of human knowledge.

To keep the file size manageable we included only the abstracts from each article. People, History, Literature, Business, Biology, Engineering, Chemicals, Animals, Plants, Actors/Actresses, Music bands, Albums, Movies, Military equipment, and Medical terminology. We would not be able to list all subjects covered by this encyclopedia. Intuitive navigation--just start typing in the word. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
