Google Dictionary !!!

Google is taking over the internet... It released its own DNS service and I thought that was the news for the day, but wait... Google has rolled out its dictionary, and unlike when it rolls out other services this came in silently. And so, there is a great chance that you may miss this. But I won't let you do so. For, looking up words is one thing I've always used google for. Gone are the days when I had to type define:compere and then get a single line on something.
Today onwards I will just have to key in the word like I do with any other search term... (Ctrl - K, then "chamois") and see on the top right along with those big numbers a blue link [definition]

And clicking on it I will be with the meaning...

As you can see in the picture, there is easy starring of words (learn new words), pronunciation, synonym, categories, other languages having the same word, web links (what you would normally get with a "define:" tag. And finally there are dictionaries for almost every language. Even malayalam!!!!!

Just go check it out Google dictionary

And have happy days learning words...
