If you wanna look something up real quickly,  jisho.org would definitely be my first answer. 

-Pros:
-It's very lightweight on both pc and mobile, making it perfect for quick lookups.
-The interface is very easy on the eyes and easy to navigate.
-You can put in a few sentences
-You can easily list all words with a certain tag through the search option tags explained here: https://jisho.org/docs, and boy are there many of them
-it features a kanji draw lookup, though I find that of google translate better. This one has radical lookup as well however.
-It features voice lookup, but I've never tried it.
-Kanji have their own unique entries with animated gifs as well as still images to see the stroke order.
-It has found basically any Japanese word I've ever looked up that wasn't internet slang or something. It even has expression entries for things I can't find in a Japanese dictionary. 

 

-cons:
-No offline version, but that's the nature of this kind of resource.
-Only english situational equivelents of words instead of definitions like any J>E dictionary, again, nature of this kind of resource. But it does mean you never get the true meaning of the word.
- the JLPT levels and common tag are incredibly misleading. I thought it gave a rough idea for word learning priorities, but it''s much rougher than I thought. A lot of common works aren't marked as common, a lot of less common words are, and I've seen plenty of N1 marked words much more common than N5 ones and not that much more complex in meaning or anything.
-The search has to be precise and sometimes I look up a word and get nothing in the results even though I'm 100% sure there is one
The romaji search sometimes has issues with words with the  ''n'' because it's a seperate syllable in Japanese or a part of na/ni/no/ne/nu. Typing in hiragana is thus advised.
-You can only show 20 words per page, and often words from the last page appear on the next one for reasons I can not understand. But hey at least it has pages unlike most modern sites.
-Only a very low percentage of words come with an audio sample
-The kanji breakdowns by components are incredibly inaccurate. Check the Kanji map for better ones.
-No Pitch accent
-Sample sentences aren't as good as other sources
-Co-location feature is rarely available, but I guess it's still a plus considering I don't know any other with it.
-It hasn't been updated in ages as far as I'm aware.
edit
-Sometimes a word will only be under a word in ''Other forms'' instead of having its own separate entry, even though it really should just be considered a separate word. It just makes these words easy to overlook.
