Free Online Guitar Chord Dictionaries

Okay so my guitar mania continues. After bringing out lists of Guitar tuner , Metronomes and mobile tools for guitarist today I am posting a list of online Guitar chord dictionaries. One of the difficult tasks for a beginner in guitar is to find and know the different chords formation. What adds to the confusion is that a chord can be played in many different formations. This is where the Chord dictionaries comes handy. I have listed only free and online dictionaries in the post (may be I would do a post in standalone dictionaries later) which doesn't need any kind of registration. (I hate feeling out those forms for each and every damn thing, don't you?). Anyway if I have left out some good free online chord dictionaries which you know of please comment and let me know.
