    I don't know. The old site always struck me as somewhat amateurish.

    I check spelling and definition by right clicking in my browser, so it's not going to affect me to say the least.

    haha I just saw this when I went there. At first I thought I typed in the wrong address and had to double check it a few times to make sure. I liked the old site personally, didn't really look at the new on that much though.

    Eh, I just alt+click on words to see their definition if I need to... I don't mind the new look of dictionary.com though.

    what? you pay for this site now? that sucks

    I usually just go to urban dictionary for straight up or funny definitions, but now I'll need to find another FREE site. I'm sure there are plenty out there

    Answers.com works really well... gives a definition (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition) and often a lot of other information about the word/s you're looking up. It's also what google uses, so you can just type the word in on google and hit the definition button.

    I always found answers.com filled with random ads and links that filled half the page. Their definitions were always just stuck somewhere among the useless stuff. dictionary.com used to give you direct definitions right when you scroll down
