Thesaurus works with ecto

MacOSX has a pretty good spell checker built in, but it does, unfortunately, not have a thesaurus. And we all love new ways to express an idea. From Nisus comes Nisus Thesaurus, which is based on WordNet.

Using Thesaurus is easy. Just select the word in your favorite application and choose “Nisus Thesaurus” from the “Services” sub-menu. When you select a word in Nisus Thesaurus, the synonyms for that word will be shown right next to it in the Word Browser. Go from “sky” to “cumulonimbus” in just a few clicks.

It works very well with ecto.
