Another great thing, of course, is all those clever folks helping you find things worth knowing about. Thank you AKMA for another resource I didn’t know about.
I like online dictionaries, since much of the information I seek in a dictionary appears only in the heaviest, bulkiest, least portable and convenient sources. I d long relied on Dictionary.com, but if you have the bandwidth, Webster s Online tops everything else I ve seen.
Of course, if you just want the correct spelling or a simple definition, there s no need to call up all the overhead from Webster s. Webster s is for browsing and reveling more than elegant simplicity (though there must be a way of making the output from Webster s more elegant, without aggravating its bandwidth load).
