Default any good dictionary / thesaurus software (free)?

Please Login to Remove!

I wonder if anyone can recomment any good dictionary / thesaurus software (free) to use.

I tried some dictionary plug-ins in Berry411. For example, I use DICT plug-in. When I search a word, it does not display the meaning of the word. in fact, it redirects me to another website so I could "search" the word.

any other good plug-in for dictionary / theasurus?

I also use the dictref plug-in in Berry411. I think it's great.

There's a link to a dictionary website on BBerryOne . I haven't used it so I have no idea if it is any good or not.

thanks. i think this plug-in works very well.

I tried the other one - berrydictionary. I entered a word and tried to use this plug-in to search thr Berry411. Berrydictionary only brings up a webpage and required me to enter the word manually.

the dictref is good because it does "search" for me and display the answers on the browser.

thanks!

both "dict" and "dictref" are good Berry411 plugins.

I deleted the berrydictionary plugin, since it didn't work well and seemed to be an attempt to drive traffic to a PC site.
