Sorry Dictionary.com. I know it’s Valentines Day tomorrow but I’m afraid our affair has to end.
The fact is, you’re not really looking after yourself. Your design is tired, and you’re getting overrun by adverts and popups. Sure, my web browser was able to sort out the latter but the situation’s been like this for a while and it’s not getting any better.
Now I don’t want to kick you while you’re down, but I’ve found someone new. There’s no popups and just a bit of conspicuous advertising down the side. It looks fresh, and, I’m sorry to say, does more than you. Sure, like you it’s got a selection of dictionaries to hand, but when did you ever pull out Wikipedia entries too? What about translations into other languages? What about links to related web sites?
Sorry, but it’s over. Answers.com is my new dictionary of choice.
As you might know, Google recently switched to answers.com as well, and, apparently, the decision was simply because answers.com offered a better service. No money changed hands. Impressive.
