Short Description
Mozilla Internet Dictionary - MID - is a tabbed dictionary browser using the dictionary resources of the Internet. It can save you having to manually track down the best reference material on the Net by making available an assortment of reliable and well-respected searchable dictionaries and encyclopaedias in a single tabbed interface. See screenshots. It is pre-loaded with lots of dictionaries and users can customize it to use their preferred ones.
The bravest can edit dictionaries.xml in mid.jar by hand.
All the searchable services offered up by MID are already available on the Internet, so you don't need to use it to get access to them. Nevertheless, because it provides a one-stop-shop for all this useful reference material you're more likely to consult MID than manually visit each of the websites in question.
You can contact me, Attila Szabo the author, request for new dictionaries, suggest new features or offer your help as a programmer to enhance the project. Any help and opinion would be greatly appreciated. You can write me to my Google mail address:
