OmniDictionary is a Mac OS X client for network dictionary servers. It's pretty straightforward - type a word into the entry field, hit return, and the definition is displayed. If the dictionary server supports multiple dictionaries, you can select your desired dictionary from the dictionary popup to limit queries to that specific dictionary, or you can query all the dictionaries. OmniDictionary also provides a "Define in OmniDictionary" Service, so you can select words in your other applications and hit Command-= to see the definition.

  • Framework and OmniCrashCatcher updates.

I *love* programs that are very simple and that do just one thing very well. Omni Dictionary is the perfect online dictionary client. Not bloated, but simple, fast, and easy to use.

The main problem with this app like all the other online dictionaries is the distinct lack of an English dictionary. The CIA while writing vast quantities of fiction are not a good source for acurate definitions on anything non political. I recommend buying the Oxford English its slow but definative

Great App/service. One big minus is that it doesn't support proxies (ideally via
OS X's Network proxies system prefs panel)
