In the recent past, I wrote about a few utilities I find indispensable on my personal computer. These included :
[Turbo Type] – a highly customizable word auto-completion – as you type
[Clavier+] – an awesome keyboard remapping tool
[TheSage] – Dictionary, thesaurus. General reference -an awesome tool for people who need to communicate effectively in English.
All of these are Windows ™ programs.
I hereby draw attention to two more free Windows applications that I find noteworthy.
One is a “Wordweb”. The other is a “Figuresmith”:
1) WordWeb – this is very similar to “TheSage”
It is yet another notable tool tool for those who cherish speaking and writing impeccable “Queen’s English”
The program has a few narrowly defined function – to be a comprehensive dictionary that popups up when you click a word. It offers semantics, synonyms, etymology, similar sounding words and pronunciation of the specified word.
If you are a Blogger, Novelist, Journalist, e.t.c – you will love this application. Visit: http://www.wordweb.info and grab what Pc-World calls ” …so much more than an exceptionally good thesaurus”
2) SpeQMath – This one of the most complete free-form ‘calculators’ I have seen. To call it a calculator is to grossly belittle its diverse capabilities. It plots graphs and handles the usual engineering tricks – with aplomb. It simply rocks. If you are someone that need to compute ANYTHING, this is for you. Computer scientists, Engineers, Physicists, Architects, e.t.c. This is an indispensable for you!
