Has anyone else done this? I was reading an article online and didn't know the meaning of a word... I automatically scrolled my mouse trying to find the line the word was on so that I could look it up!

I was a little put out that it didn't work and I had to "Google" it instead!

;D Goofy...

Hehee! I haven't done THAT (yet), but I have tried looking for the scrollbar on a paper book. I was pretty disappointed when I came to the realisation I'd have to actually get off my arse to go look up the word on the computer. The Kindle dictionary is so awesomely convenient. Love it.

You folks must not be Mac users - "Look up in Dictionary" is an item on the right-click menu in Safari.  Works almost exactly the same as on the Kindle.

Yet another reason to "switch" :D  (Not that I'm proselytizing :D)

*grin* I use this feature on my Macs all the time. Great, isn't it?
