Fast Safari and Mail Dictionary access

You can very quickly look up a word on any webpage in Safari or e-mail in Mail by a OS X Dictionary keyboard shortcut. All you have to do is double-click to highlight the word and press Command + Control + D. This will bring up a fast definition box without loading up the entire Dictionary application.

You can also look up words by double-clicking to highlight the word, and then right-click, and choose "Look Up in Dictionary", but this will load up the entire application into the Dock and will not bring up the fast definition box you can access with the keyboard shortcut.
