Just when you thought Google did everything, the search engine giant silently pushed out Google Dictionary. Googlers are presented with a long list of usage examples along with standard dictionary-like features such as definitions and synonyms. Google Dictionary also displays related phrases, related languages and Web definitions from the likes of Wikipedia. You can also star words for later reference. It’s pretty neat.

Google also rolled out a translated search tool that’s been available in Translate, but now works in all of Google Search. Go ahead and search for whatever it is that you’re looking for and then select “Translated search” under “Show Options” and you’ll be on your way. Fancy.
