5 Great Reasons to Use Answers.com

1. The right tool for the right query.
Search engines are terrific when you’ve got a complex request; if you are trying to recall, say, the name of a Victorian Scottish woolen bonnet*, there’s probably a page out there that you can dig up. But if you need to know what pie in the sky means, when Benjamin Franklin was born, or whether Aeschylating is a cromulent word, a search engine isn’t your best bet. You need a FREE one stop reference tool.

2. Nothing beats the speed of 1-Click AnswersTM.

We’re more than just a website. Once you download 1-Click AnswersTM, you’ll have Answers at your fingertips from whatever program you’re using:

The Old Way
1. Open Your Browser
2. Go to a search engine
3. Type in search terms
4. Hit ‘Go’
5. Read the list
6. Choose a link, click on it
7. Were you lucky? You’re done!
8. Otherwise, click Back and repeat from step 5

The 1-Click AnswersTM Way
1. Alt-Click on word(s)
2. Read your answer

3. Who needs overload? links
Even a simple question can get you complex answers from a search engine. Nobody – but nobody – needs 8,630,400 pages that mention DNA. We save you time by providing a topic-based snapshot answer rather than thousands of pages that contain your word in some context.

4. You can count on us
Reliability, not popularity, is the criterion for our answers. Answers.com contains only up-to-date, accurate definitions and explanations from authoritative sources like Houghton-Mifflin, Columbia University Press, Merriam Webster, MarketWatch, Investopedia and Who2. In addition, you can trust your children with Answers.com content, eliminating the need to do research in potentially out-of-date or unsafe sites on the Web.

5. Bigger, broader, more dynamic than any encyclopedia
Our topics range from law to poetry, from finance to nutrition, from culinary terms to mythology. No need to bookmark separate sites for cross-discipline reference.
