Google Define

Dictionaries have come a long way.

It used to be, you had to go all the way to and wait for the page to load before typing in your word (which might not be a word.) For now, though, the easiest way to look a word up is to use Google’s define feature.

It’s pretty easy: just type, say, define: bluster and there you go.

But I can think of a way can make itself better: let me enter my word in the URL. For instance, would be good – it’s similar to the geeky site, which lets one type in commands and functions to look up right in the URL.

Give Google define a shot, though – I find it really handy.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
