Many times while working we found some words or phrase which are unfamiliar to use or we cant remember their meaning, in that case we might take out our dictionary from the Book shelf and look for the meaning, well it was the case of old days, now we can just use Google to find the meaning of any words.

If you are bored with using Google and want some more interesting search engine or dictionary which could not only teach you but have some fun over there too then you can use VisuWord, its an online Visual Dictionary.

VisuWords is an online dictionary and thesaurus tool, When you search for any word it will show its meaning and not only this it will also associate that word with others and shows an visual interface which is quite easy to understand and nice to see.

When you search for a word it will attach some more nodes with that word which are associated with it, you can hover your mouse over each node to get its definition and meaning, you can use your mouse scroll to zoom in or zoom out. You can also click on each nodes to expand them further.
