Mobysaurus - nice free thesaurus

(1/2) > >>

We love free dictionaries and word tools on this forum; here's a nice looking thesaurus, mobysaurus:

and a nice blog about program here:

MOBYSAURUS is a free English thesaurus software that integrates Grady Ward's huge Moby Thesaurus II. It's royalty-free, powerful and most suitable for everyday reference. With this, you will feel it so much easier to choose the right word or words for every occasion or purpose.

Too bad that isn't an online service. I don't like to install programs when an online service would make more sense (to me).

i feel the opposite way, i prefer apps not have to go online.

another comment: i've tried mobysaurus, it works great and has a nice incremental search.

a big thumbs up from me  :Thmbsup:

Well, my PC is online 24/7, so I prefer these benefits:
- easy to use whereever I am (no need to install)
- easier to recommend (no need to install just to test it)
- no need for me to update the app

seems to me if you want to run it online, you dont need an app just a bookmark.

however, here is the kind of thing an offline app can do: incremental search - as you type it narrows down the words that match - good if you are bad at spelling for example.
