Artha description
Artha is a handy cross-platform thesaurus based on WordNet with distinct features like hot key pop-up, notification, dual modes, etc. It may be used as a free, open-source replacement/clone for WordWeb on UNIX-like operating systems.

The main focus of Artha is high usuability, with much simplicity. It has distinct features like hot key combo, notifications, etc. Once the application is launched, it sits in the system tray. The user can select text on any window, and call Artha by pressing the set hot key combination, which pops up Artha with the word looked-up. If the user wants notifications, rather than the app. popping up, it can be done by enabling notifications, which results in a (balloon tip) notification of the selected word's prime definition from WordNet, from the system tray, when the hot hey is pressed.

Technically, Artha is written in pure C using the GTK+ widget kit & Glib, making it cross-desktop and cross-platform. It uses libnotify for notifications. It may be used as a advanced replacement for WordWeb in GNU/Linux environments. Currently different flavours of GNU/Linux are targeted, but porting to other UNIX-like systems, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows will commence soon.. .
