I spent some time to compare Wordweb http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1467 vs. TheSage http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=782
- Easy to use, simple interface nobody's going to get confused by. Reminds me a bit more of an actual dictionary.
- Random word view.
- Has ctrl+alt+w to look up words or selecting and right-clicking while holding control. Very easy to remember.
- Weird license, asking me how many flights the user has taken. I understand and definitely support the point behind this, but its still odd.
- Strange color-coded tree view took some getting used to, but is quite powerful.
- Love the tabs, anagrams, and quick look at Synonyms, Antonyms Hypernym (I had to look that up ... it's a word that's more generic than the given word), and Derived words. Awesome.
WordWeb at version 8.1, changes:
- New Chrome extension with reliable look up and support for Replace in Chrome browser
- New words and senses
- Alt+D keyboard hotkey to focus lookup box
- Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2 etc shortcuts for the dictionary tabs now work within web browser and add-on dictionary tabs
- Right click menu on a WordWeb's pronunciation text now gives option to copy the pronunciation text
Good news. I've been testing a somewhat related "Grammarly" (a language/spellcheck plugin) for Firefox with mixed success. I've been drafting up a fair amount of text that makes me want to come back to WordWeb in the days ahead.smaragdus wrote:WordWeb at version 8.1
