Massive English dictionary focused on usability and discovery

When I was at school I remember a pile of 3.5 inch floppy disks taller than me sitting next to a CD with the proud label, “all of these fit on a single CD”. That same CD held Encarta, the digital encyclopedia. It seemed impossible – like the whole breadth of human knowledge could fit on a flat piece of plastic.

Now, some 20 years later, I take it for granted, and looking at Advanced English Dictionary I find myself thinking… “Yes, and?”, as I search for what else it does.
