...except that it doesn't suggest alternate spellings when you get the spelling wrong. instead it just shows the word you typed in, without even a message saying the word wasn't found. that's a pretty important feature for an online dictionary, imo.

otherwise, it seems rather cool.

I recommend WordWeb Pro - http://www.wordweb.info/ - a fantastic little app that runs in the background. Select a word, Alt+Ctrl+W and up pops WordWeb with a explanative dictionary, thesaurus (synonyms, atonyms etc.), anagrams, similar words and all sorts.
