Lightbulb How to look up online a word you don't know

Whenever I see a word in the forums that I don't know the meaning of, I double-click the word (or words) to select it/them, then right-click and select "Web search for [word]". I use Mozilla; other browsers might say something different but similar.

My default search engine opens in a new window, with the results of the search. Quick and easy btw, this works on any Web page, not just on the DC forums.

Hope this is helpful.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

I use Mozilla too - double click, the word/s is/are highlighted, right click, choose Google word "whatever". Thanks for the reminder that it can be done this way!
