WordWeb is a free English thesaurus and dictionary for Windows, and can be used to look up words from within almost any program in just one click. It works off-line, but can also look up words in web references such as the Wikipedia encyclopedia. Features of the free version include:
Definitions and synonyms
150 000 root words
The application works. I got the pro version and the keygen.exe works 100% in WINE (not a very sophisticated executable, however fortunately it works perfectly). The menus work and the font can be changed.
What does not
The hotkey doesn't work. WordWeb will not pick up highlighted words. WordWeb only appeared once for me in the system tray (when executed upon installation). The help file didn't seem to work (shouldn't be needed for such a simple application).
What was not tested
