Better living through technology

I'd like to state how very, very much I love the widget known as DicRAE, which allows me easy access to the dictionary of the Real Academia Española over the internet. For months upon months, it's been helping me write more efficiently (as long as my precious is hooked up to its cable modem, that is). It is also responsible for me consulting dictionaries more often, because when all I have to do is hit F12 to get to Dashboard, type a few letters into the DicRAE widget, and hit the return key in order to see an entry, why not look a word up?

I love the sort of useful freeware one can find at the Mac OS X Downloads page.
