NoDictionaries is a web app that makes it very easy to look up the meaning of words while reading a latin text. It uses a freely available latin dictionary (Whitaker's Words) and what it does is essentially to enrich each line of a latin text with the explanations of the words appearing in it.
Nothing too difficult, you might think. True - but the clean and simple graphical layout, coupled with a quick and responsive interface, seemed to me the real winner here.
The site, built as a master project by a student of Tufts uni (that's where the Perseus project lives, I believe..), features a pretty big number of latin texts. So if you want to brush up your latin, you definitely won't get bored here.
Very nice work - inspiring and straight to the point! A more extensive review of this app can be found here (note: the review is particularly good for latinists).
