The Online Dictionary is Reborn with Word Source.

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 7 years ago

Nich writes "Word Source aims to be a panacea (look it up — www.word.sc/panacea) for people who look up words frequently and are tired of the cumbersome, advertisement-laden interfaces on other dictionary websites. The home page is slick, reminiscent of Google, proudly proclaims that "the online dictionary is reborn," and encourages you to "never leave your address bar," by using a URL to look up words. For example, to look up "television," you would simply point your browser at word.sc/television and presto — defined. While you're there, you can explore "the social dictionary" and view/share photos of your favorite words, "rate" them, and "tag" words based on your experience with them, amongst other things."
