In safari ( if you want to use a browser) you just have type in the google search box
define and your yourword/s. ie

It's more about being able to select your dictionary if you have specific needs (say a medical dictionary or Spanish dictionary). I use Merriam-Webster's Unabridged subscription dictionary, so I can specify that in the various code examples in this thread (including the bookmarklet).

I rarely use the bookmarklet in Safari. I mostly use my highlight & lookup script, as it's the fastest way I've found to get a definition. The script in the parent of this thread is good for looking up a word you are thinking of, as opposed to one that is already typed or displayed.

The applescripts work best if they are bound to a keyboard command using Spark or some other app (I use iKey).
