Looking up words.
Links (In the word's definition, related words are hyperlinks to their own dictionary entries.)
What does not
Audio. There's a clickable button in each entry to demonstrate pronunciation, but it is not working.
There is a feature where, when you select a word in any application, the dictionary tries to display its entry for that word. But the dictionary is running so slowly that this is just an annoyance. It can be turned off.
What was not tested
Features that I don't know about.
Glacially slow. When you type into the Search box, the dictionary doesn't wait for you to finish typing - it immediately looks up the entry for the 1st letter you typed, and then goes on to match the next letters as you type them. But it can't remotely keep up with normal typing. Sometimes focus leaves the text box, which is annoying. Overall, it it certainly worth installing. It's running on a 10-year-old laptop. A faster computer might work much better.
