I use this app as a standalone Wikipedia browser. It's nice to be able to read Wikipedia articles without the clutter of all the '[edit]' links at the top of every section.

Tips: there's a nice way of viewing Ruby, Rails 3 and jQuery documentation within Dictionary.app (courtesy of Priit Haamer and Mika Tuupola):

Correction: Not support but plug-ins or .dict files

There's a plugin that provides a cool german-english dictionary for offline use.
Check it out.

I just wish there's a localized British version..

I love the dictionary too. Single best thing on Tiger, or close to it. If you do not know this program, check out my small blog post at <a href="http://onmymac.blogspot.com/2007/06/dictionary.html">http://onmymac.blogspot.com/2007/06/dictionary.html</a>. But don't bother if you already do. I also keep dreaming of the day when it will come in other languages. Programming isn't the issue. Copyright is. What did Apple have to pay for this one? What would Duden expect for a decent German dictionary? And so on. Oh well. Here's to hope . . .

I love having this application come with every Mac. I use it at least twice a day.

After Quicksilver, I use this way more than anything (and I only use Quicksilver more because I use it to open dictionary...)
