I was making a thread about this just now, but I see yours here. Excellent resource!
Thesaurus.com is an obvious pick, and I have it open much of the time.
Rhymezone.com is a really helpful one. The search options allows it for searching lots of other things; rhymes are just the default.
My newest is the Roget's International Thesaurus, 5th Edition, edited by Robert L. Chapman and published by Harper Reference.
I keep two dictionaries and a thesaurus on my desk. I have a paperback edition of The Oxford Pocket American Dictionary that's a 2002 printing, a hard cover copy of Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary that's a 1974 printing, and a third edition Roget's International Thesaurus published by Thomas Y. Crowell Company that's a 1962 printing. I suppose I'm showing my age. I checked the plural spelling of thesaurus. The Oxford dictionary is showing both thesauri and thesauruses as acceptable. One thing I prefer about Webster's is that it shows which syllable to accent. The Oxford does not.
