WWW.answers.com is a website just like Wikipedia. This website gives us great information on different stuff. The thing about this website is that it combines all information from lots of different websites and displays it all to us in a orderly manner on one single page. So if you want to look up information on any particular place, word, person or thing then instead of going to Wikipedia, Britannica, or so many other websites you just have to feed in the word on this website and it shows related articles from all these different websites. Mind you the information is in enough quantity to gather as much knowledge as possible without it being a bore that we keep on scrolling down endlessly. also there are features like a speaker symbol which on clicking gives us the pronunciation of the word we typed. Then you can always highlight and double click on any word in the entire text on a floating window opens up telling us the meaning of the highlighted word. This feature is pretty useful while looking up medical stuff and you to keep googling various complicated terms used in the text every now and then.
Then there are sources and references listed at the end of the page too. And a list of translations of the word in many different languages is also provided. Overall the website helps us to get all the information from one single page without having to navigate to so many different sites and get lost in the jumble of information !
There is auto correct and did-you-mean feature provided on this website too and if the typed word/phrase happens to be unavailable in the database if the website, then it automatically brings up the Google search of it. Also you can find informative videos of the typed in words/phrases.
The website also has a special library section where a lot of topics are listed in various categories. There is also a very exclusive Harry Potter based section where you can find the meanings, pronunciation and lot of other information of a lot of terms used in the books and the movies.
