Current Version: 2.9.2 (November 6, 2004)

Another fine piece of software from Navdeep Bains (the author of POPThing and ViaHTTP), MacDICT is a DICT client - one of only two I know of for the Macintosh. This extremely handy (and free) application searches (at current) 21 online databases for information relating to any word you provide it with: definitions, histories, you name it. It's like having a simple handy reference guide/encyclopedia for your desktop that doesn't hog nearly the resources that a Web browser does. Version 2.9.2 adds/changes the following:

  • Bug fixes.

MacDICT 2.9.2 is still completely free, but the author wouldn't mind an optional (but well-deserved!) $10 payment, which can be easily made with the included "register" application. For more information on the DICT protocol itself, see the home page.
