It's a really good concept, but stars deducted for both functionality and design. This widget would be much more helpful if it displayed the definition right there on the widget, rather than opening Safari. Also, the text centered in the search box is unintuitive. If these changes were made, this would be a four or five star widget easily!

Yes, I find the widget slightly unappealing graphically, and I also agree that adding the search results into the widget would be a nice touch.
