What a deliciously interesting juxtaposition of minds, in this thread!

As for difficult words - many browser have a search bar next to the navigation bar. On this here windows machine, helping me to write this message, searching for a certain word takes about five seconds. One second to mark the word of interest, then two seconds to:
CTRL-C to copy word to memory
CTRL-T to open new tab in browser
TAB to move from navigation bar to to search bar
CTRL-V to paste word in search bar
ENTER to search
.. The last two seconds are used to move the mouse pointer to the search result of interest (usually an online dictionary) and click the left mouse button.

If you'll excuse the language, I might say it's a bl**dy fast alternative to the good old dictionary.
