Ninja words - an Ajaxxy on-line dictionary

Submitted by Druss on Sat, 2007-04-21 23:09

For those who are already unfamiliar with Ninja words, it's probably best described as a Web Too (sic) on-line dictionary. Fast, no ads, clean interface etc. etc. While the definitions are not the greatest in the world (they are scraped from the Wiktionary project and other free resources), they are good enough for a quick look-up.

While there are search tool-bar plug-ins for Firefox, I prefer to use a bookmark with a keyboard short-cut instead. To do this, do the following:

  • Bookmark the Ninjawords page in Firefox.
  • Click on Bookmarks, right click on the Ninjawords entry and select properties.
  • In the dialogue that pops up, enter for location, and n for the keyword.
  • Click OK to save and then type something like "n languorous" in the address bar and press enter to see this nifty trick in action.

Cool. huh?
