hello frndz

The simplest thing would be to install free edition of WordWeb dictionary. WordWeb: Free English thesaurus dictionary download
After installing it, you just need to select the word (by double click or anything) and then press Ctrl+Shift+W (default Shortcut), and POP comes a window explaining its meaning, as well as synonym, if any. Great app! This works on words selected in any other applications too, like MS-Office, and ANY browser.

But if you want any extension to the browser, I have one, called as "Apture Highlights", for Chrome browser, which I use.
Screenshot would explain how it works....

I am sure, you can find such add on for firefox too, or you can use Chrome for the meanwhile. :oops:

I just LOVE WordWeb. Pressing Ctrl + Alt + W has become my second nature when I need to look for a meaning of something.
And yeah, the shortcut is Ctrl + Alt + W, and not what I had written in my previous post. My apologies.

Yeah. That was a good list. Making list isn't an easy task. But they accomplished it brilliantly.
Now I also have the list of must apps to install in Linux, now that I am thinking to try Ubuntu. :)
