you can use WebService from http://www.extensio.com:8080/ExtensioInfoServer/mbsoap/MBWSSoapServices.wsdl
simply import with WSDL Importer wizard (Delphi7) from File | New.. WebServices tab.
and use:

uses MBWSSoapServices;
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  with GetMBWSPortType do
    Memo1.Lines.Text :=getServiceResponsePublic('Synonym', Edit1.Text);

this service returns HTML source (but you can strip tags or save in temporary file and show in WebBrowser).
not the best solution, but one solution is more than zero :)
wbr, mo.
