The PC Webopaedia is a comprehensive IT dictionary and search site for computer-related terms and links to related material on the Web. Like most search sites, the interface is clean and easy to navigate, and the content covers a broad range of terms from the easy to the high-end. The home page has the ubiquitous keyword search box, as well as a means of limiting searches by category. It also has a top 10 list of the most popular terms searched for and a "Term of the Day". More interesting, is a section listing terms recently added. You can find new terms and learn about new technologies just from following one of these links. The results pages are well strucured, offering another search box at the top of the page, followed by the definition of the term and then links to Web pages related to the term. Also included, in boxes to the side, are links to related categories on the site. Browsing through the categories can be a useful way of filling the gaps in one's knowledge of a particular field. The Webopaedia doesn't stop there, however. You can also download it in a Windows 95 Help file format, albeit a Lite version that may not be completely up-to-date. You can also add a search box on your own site that will search the Webopaedia. The company that produces the site, Sandy Bay Software, also offers the Wordlink service, that will scan a site for terms listed in the Webo-paedia and link them to the site. You can add this service to your own site for free, but do remember that it might lead people away from your pages! Otherwise, an excellent resource. www.pcwebopaedia.com.
