Welcome to the free encyclopedia: an online encyclopedia and search engine for terms and definitions. My mission is to encourage the use of freely available information via the internet - in supporting this free encyclopedia you are preventing the internet community from being exploited by similar encyclopedias which charge for this information on a subscription basis.
