Ninja Fast Dictionary

Long ago, I got in the habit of using Mer­ri­am-Web­ster’s online dic­tio­nary. And I’ve suf­fered through the painful­ly slow page loads for the bet­ter part of a decade. But then I stum­bled upon a bet­ter alter­na­tive. Nin­ja­Words is “a real­ly fast dic­tio­nary … fast like a Nin­ja.” Give it a try. You’ll enjoy the speed.

PS Anoth­er cool option is, which is fast and fea­tures a handy auto-com­plete func­tion. Thanks to a read­er for flag­ging that one for us.

  • I sup­pose is even faster with its “auto-com­plete” func­tion as we type.

  • richard says: is amaz­ing­ly quick, but the def­i­n­i­tion of the first word I tried (propaedeu­tic) con­tained a typo. There are no links or email address­es for feed­back (at least none I could find). It’s always a bit scary to use a tool that pro­vides zero feed­back to its main­tain­er. But I guess this thing is just a show­boat for Rails any­way.

    It’s real­ly fast but it seems it’s not com­pre­hen­sive. also Auto-Com­plete is a great fea­ture which is miss­ing. I pre­fer http://WWW.AZDIC.COM

    A new one is : “a free online dictionary/thesaurus with exten­sive cross-ref­er­enc­ing, com­plete inflec­tions, sim­ple inter­face, and fre­quent updates. It’s fast too.” No auto-sug­gest (yet) though.
