  1. Add a way to clean search history.

    Essentially the recent search history, while I'm aware goes away with time, is still clutter, especially if I want to keep Chrome open with the tab open. I'd like if there was a button of some type, or a SHIFT+DEL type of keyboard shortcut, where you could delete all or individual search history results you no longer need. This is important due to the fact it eventually starts clogging the results, making it hard to find certain words. Ideally, I'd like to think an option to simply not save search history would be nice as well.

  2. App for PC

    I think power thesaurus is fantastic sometimes I go through several different Thesaurus' starting with one word, in search of just the right alternative but when I found power thesaurus I found that wasn't necessary. The only problem is, I do most of my writing on my PC or with pen and paper. If I need to look up a word my go to is either my personal hard copy dictionary/thesaurus or my PC. However, as anyone with wifi knows a stable internet connection can't always be relied on. So, I just wanted suggest I'm not the only one that…

  3. Increase the number of possible results from 5 to 10

    In the settings menu, allow users to increase the number of synonym/antonym results beyond 5.

    As part of this update, users should also be able to adjust font size, so that powerthesarus doesn't take up too much screen space.

  5. Create a page for each word that displays some top synonyms, top antonyms, and the definition

    Create a page for each word that displays some top synonyms, top antonyms, and the definition so you can see everything on one page.

  7. ...allow word/phrase suggestions from users.

    ...allow word/phrase suggestions from users.
    Even if not strictly accurate (in fact, maybe esp so!) some might prove useful to some readers.
    And AFAICT, more time-spent-on-pages = higher rankings in search engines, a win-win!

    We have asked editorial team to dedicated more time for slang terms whenever they review and updated pages. They use ‘slang’ topic for these. Also the team is working on making sure all English idioms and popular phrases have been added.

  10. Allow users to suggest a definition that you might not have heard

    A "new" definition would have to be reviewed to make sure it's not bogus or just very uncommon.

  11. Place word definition on the same page as synonyms

    As it stands users need to follow a link to view word definitions. It'd be nice if the most common definition of a word could be placed on the same page as the synonyms.

  12. Instead of having numbers for multiple pages show it as A-Z, and put it at the top.

    Sometimes I can't remember a word but I can usually remember what it starts with. If we could go to a page by letter instead of number it would be faster. Or at least expand the range of numbers so I can jump to like page 11 instead of clicking on each one.

  13. Allow accounts so can keep track of upvoted words

    I love this service but sometimes I'll find a word I want, move on, and then have a hard time finding it again

    It would be nice to have accounts (optional) so users can:
    - view all upvoted (and, I guess, downvoted) words
    - this also encourages users to be more proactive about upvoting because it also acts as a bookmark (which helps the site's content)
    - Could possibly be connected to word maps which would be cool because it would encompass all the user's favorite words and even show connections
    - have an easier time adding new words because…

    Jonah, thank you for your suggestion! The new version has most of the features you mentioned. The points system is being developed too, however it will not be public with more focus on actual user’s contributions.

    In regards to “have an easier time adding new words” – we will fix this right now (name and email should be saved in cookies and shown once you are back on a form).

  14. Include the ability to add topics to pre-existing words

    I know you can re-add the same word with the topics appended, but this is unintuitive and is also unclear as to how it should work in corner cases.

    I suggest an edit button appended on the right hand side of the column for each word, so as to allow the topics to then be corrected more intuitively.

  15. Include a “Combo Word Search" Feature

    Searching for 2+ Words Together
    would be great! I'd love to be able to search for COMMON synonyms between two related words. Perhaps you have this feature available and I have not yet discovered how to apply it successfully. I was looking for Ablution(s) synonyms, and hoped that by including/combining 1(or more) synonyms in my search, may add CONTEXT, FOCUS et al … Narrowing the search to more relevant, precise result(s) which is my goal. Example : Search [<-Ablution & Purification -> Together ](&/or others on the list) for Common synonyms - Thank You for your time and consideration. Great…
