Clear, concise, and up-to-date definitions of more than three thousand computer terms are yours at a click, with PCWebopaedia Lite for Windows.

It's a free client for the well-known PCWebopaedia online service that all the big Internet tech magazines are linking to these days -- in a familiar Windows Help format you can browse at your leisure while offline.

Every locally-stored definition is linked to a corresponding Web page where you can find updated definitions and links to other Web pages with additional information about the term. PCWebopaedia Lite includes 70 original illustrations, 30 tables, more than 8,000 cross-references and over 30,000 hotspots.

The definitions list is updated all the time, since so many techie sites submit new ones almost daily. So it's good idea to subscribe to the free PCWebopaedia newsletter, or click on the main site link from the client to see postings of news terms. PCWebopaedia is a comprehensive resource, and having a local client makes it all that more convenient to use. It comes in a nice install/uninstall package, too.
