Get word definitions instantly with Definr

26Nov07

There are some people out there who seem to be walking dictionaries.  They like to use big words and can instantly spew out the definition of any word you throw at them.  It’s annoying.  I’m not one of those people but when I do hear a word that I don’t know the meaning of, I will almost always do the typical “defineinsert big confusing word here” Google search.  However, I think I’ve found something better.

Definr claims to be “an incredibly fast dictionary” – and it is.  Just go to Definr.com and start typing in the word you want defined and Definr will use auto complete to make the search faster (especially if you don’t know exactly how to spell it).  That’s it.  Your definition is displayed and you can continue on your way.  The reason I like Definr so much is because you don’t need to go to Definr.com in order to use it.  You can use one of their tools and look up any word you come across while browsing the Web.  Here’s my screencast tour of Definr:
