      Almost everyone thinks Artha is a great alternative to WordWeb.
      It's good better for fast searching of a meaning of a word. Almost like the world wide web.

      It's a proper dictionary. Open source. Can even use the same dictionary that Word Web use. It can also use the more comprehensive Wiktionary if you so choose.

      WordNet® is a large lexical database of English. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations.


      The most recent Windows version of WordNet is 2.1, released in March 2005, and version 3.0 for Unix/Linux/Solaris/etc. was released in December 2006.

    3. This program can look for the definition or translation of a word in existing databases over the Internet or over local databases. It is extremely simple to use. It also contains a GNOME panel applet for that effect.
