Until recently I would have given dict.cc 6 stars. However, in the last week or two the website's response has slowed to a crawl. Looking at it with uMatrix, it looks as though the site has recently acquired a lot of 3rd-party content (gadgets, scripts, etc.)
I like the communication between professionals
