Pre-Firefox 1.5 had this really cool option in the top right quick search. You could type in a word, select the Dictionary.com from the drop down, hit enter, and within seconds confirm if the word you typed was spelled correctly and even hop to the Thesaurus to find another version of the same word on a whim.
As of 1.5, it’s replaced with The Free Dictionary.com. It’s not as simple as Dictionary.com’s interface, but the worst part of all?
Try double-clicking the word it finds. It refreshes the page, removing your highlight, thus you can’t copy paste. You can if you drag, but wtf? Talk about the most successful way to f’up the usability your website. Smooth move crackheads!
My co-worker claims that they do that because they are somehow getting your double-click to register with the ads below the word… I don’t believe it, but am not discounting the possibility. Giving people the benefit of the doubt on the internet is hard.
…I miss my Dictionary.com…
