Those of you familiar with Gurunet will be interested to learn that an improved, simplified and FREE version of this excellent online reference tool is now available at http://www.answers.com/main/product_info.jsp

All you have to do is hold down the ALT key and place/click the mouse cursor on any word in any application and the application gives you an excellent and elegant rundown (dictionary, encyclopedia and in some cases translation). Very neat.

Thanks Jan 7, 2005

I didn't think it recognised word strings, but it does (I still don't know how far).

I'm glad you like it. It's elegant and unobtrusive, isn't it? It would be nice if it could be extended to translate INTO Rnglish but I suppose you can't have everything!

Here's something else which might turn into something big. It's a work in progress.
