I was surprised to realize that I’ve been using this feature a lot lately. A real honest to goodness dictionary/thesaurus is something I’ve been needing in a word processor for a long time; Mainly because I’m a no talent hack who likes to look up big words as much as possible. This will be a very solid feature for Google Docs when it goes live. Lately I’ve been using Google about 50/50 with OpenOffice. Along with sharable docs and anywhere accessibility I have a compelling reason to use Google almost exclusively. As Google releases more features taking advantage of the web as a platform, it’s going to become very hard to justify those old desktop apps.
