Webopedia – Internet and Technology dictionary and search engine

Ever come across an internet or computer related term or acronym that made absolutely NO sense? And yet the writer, perhaps even me, uses it as if everyone on the planet should know what it means?

Webopedia is the site for you. “The only online dictionary and search engine you need for computer and Internet technology definitions.”

Become a Patron of Ask Leo! and go ad-free!

FUD? TCP/IP? router? smiley? These and thousands of other words and acronyms are defined in short, easy to understand terms, and heavily cross-referenced so if you stumble across another term you’ve not heard of before, understanding is just a mouse click away.

While I try not to use too many buzzwords and incomprehensible acronyms, if there’s a term you’re not sure about, Webopedia is a great place to track it down.

  1. Hi, Leo—–Please correct the Webopedia definition of S-video: S-video stands for SEPARATE VIDEO, not Super Video.

    Other than pointing people to them I have nothing to do with Webopedia and can’t change their content. You’ll need to contact them.
