Web Raid: Find Out What Acronyms Mean

 Oh my, it’s been a while since we did feature a web raid here. Probably it’s because good web services and web-based are hard to come by nowadays. Many are just clones of some other tool. But some do still deserve a bit of attention. And some, that have been around for quite some time, deserve a bit of recognition. Being up for quite some time in today’s flash-in-the-pan Web does mean something.

CyberNet News just did a feature on Acronym Finder - a site that, well, based on its name, does the obvious - finds acronym meanings for you. It’s quite a straightforward search engine that would return a whole lot of results but you have to hand it to them what they’ve done for being around for 11 years now. And you can tell, it’s a grand daddy of a site with its minimalistic, old school layout.
This site is all about acronyms, just enter any acronym and it will find results for you, which you can sort by alphabetical order, or by rank. You can even sort it out by categories to give you a tighter pool especially if you know in which context like if SNAFU is some organization’s name (and it is “Southern Nevada Ale Fermenters Union”).
It has a database of 4.2 million acronyms and it’s got some Web 2.0 bells and whistles such as additions to Google Toolbar, Google Homepage, or Mozilla and IE search.
