v6.6 is out.

I don't use this personally, so I don't know about the license. Anyone want to update the database?

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

Wordweb:

  • 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.

TheSage:

  • 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.

They both are similar in concept, but very different execution. As far as I was able to tell, one isn't better than the other.

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.
