That one has been around for a while, and is particularly keen when you type in "dictionary"

>>you can click on it and get a definition of the word.<<
Here's a twist... The link takes you to the dictionary.com definition, and you're also given a link below the definition to the "10 most popular sites for [this term]," and clicking that takes you to... Ask Jeeves, where you get ten partner site results, followed by 10 Direct Hit results, and accompanied by one or two pop-ups.

It's hard to spot that word as a link though in some browsers since it is not underlined.

Not really surprising to me. Google isn't Microsoft; they don't think they have to control everything their partners do. They're also not afraid of competition from other search providers; they still occasionally link to the competition in the footers of SERPs, remember?
But while we're on the subject, has it occurred to anybody else that Google Glossary is a test for replacing dictionary.com ?
(It's [labs.google.com...] , for those of you who missed it.)

If you search for a foreign word, there will be no underline look-up option.
GG, for one of your friday afternoon - idea generator - meetings:
Please do not forget us non-English people ;).
Surely there must be other foreign on-line dictonaries Google can link to?
