Leo

Having the OS X Dictionary at your fingertips is a nice thing. But it’s only good for the very basic queries. For everything urban, slang, and new, you (or at least I) need the Leo website and its forum; not to mention phrases, idioms, and sayings.

I need it at least 123 times a day. And because I’ve the great talent to constantly close needed browser tabs and windows, I have to re-open and to re-load the Leo website 117 times a day.

And that sucks. It really sucks.

So, I once again wrote a little helper. Leo unfortunately doesn’t have a public API – but a web view will do just fine. As of now dict.leo.org is also just one click/touch/keystroke away.

Maybe it’s of use for others as well…
