Default Look Ma I can spell!

Not to try to start some stupid browser flame war, but the spell check feature of Firefox 2 is amazing! Nothing like having it check my forum posts, etc for spelling!

I second that motion, of course if MSN would do that to their browser, I don't know what I'd do.. too many features is like..having too many flavors of ice cream.. not a good thing (or is it?), could keep you busy for hours.

Macs automatically do that for you. If I spell something wrong the red squiggly comes under the word. I love my iMac.

That is one of the most annoying things about Word, the green underline denoting a grammatically error. I guess there are some "automatic" things about computers that I don't care for.

The green squiggly doesn't show up on Macs. Or I have not seen it yet.

Ill use OSX when you pry my copy of Windows XP from my cold, dead hands

I do it the old fashion way, Google toolbar! Ill switch to Firefox once IE7 is forced upon us. Im not a big fan of this new era of GUIs. I still use the Win95 gray theme on XP.

I'm not a big fan of a browser that has exploits in effect for it BEFORE it is released (go the IE7 zero day exploits). As for saying that FF has too many features, they've intentionally reduced the amount of content it has, saving that for extension developers (which can be easily downloaded and installed, several clicks easy...) that way they can focus on making the most secure fully functional browser possible. Oh yeah, and at least it adheres to W3C standards for HTML and CSS, unlike our friends at M$.
