Idea.

I always have the impression I’m the last person to discover cool stuff but here’s something which I will pass on to non-native English speakers who want to read real articles from the New York Times. Just double left click on any word and a number of definitions are given in a new window and depending on the context of the word, you choose which is the most pertinent (hey, it can’t do everything). It’s a great tool for wading through an economic jargon-heavy article or to have a hook on something culturally specific. Simple but efficient.
