By now I have made dictionary.com my default dictionary. It's good, and gives most information I require.
Today, I also realized that it includes a recording for the word's pronunciation too.
I mean, the last I checked the little speaker icon next to the word was when I used to use windoze, and at that time I don't remember it working. (guess it was a premium service)
But today, I clicked on the speaker icon out of some un-fathomable curiosity, and it worked !!
Other lovely aspects of the dictionary:
- firefox search engine plugin available.
Hence search is just a CTRL-T + TAB + a few CTRL-arrow_keys away.
- Companion sites: encyclopedia, thesaurus etc.
