Very useful if you want a dictionary. This client is much faster than the Web interface, and you don't need a connection to the internet. The dictionary is fairly unique: enter for example "dog" and then you can choose "dog is a kind of..." or "~is a part of dog" which helps you find words you don't even know. If you're shy of the large download, check the web interface (http://www.cogsci.princeton.edu/cgi-bin/webwn) to see what you get. Oh, and you get a Service to look up words...
