Tiger Dictionary

Just discovered a new shortcut for the Dictionary in Mac OS X Tiger – Press Cmd-Ctrl-D and voila, it shows the meanings of the selected word in my browser!

Shortcut to see dictionary meanings

P.S. In case you are wondering, I’m reading the RSS feed for Sepia Mutiny.

Update: The shortcut works everywhere, not just the browser.

Update: Premshree has written a Greasemonkey script that does the same for you on Firefox, although I don’t know if it’s okay by OneLook’s TOS since it does site-scraping.

  1. Every copy of Tiger comes with the Oxford Dictionary and Oxford Writer’s Thesaurus built-in. It’s usually not mentioned in the reviews, but I think it’s a great value-add.
